By M.W. Parker (Q'Olus). Polychrome cedar totem. 1/5th scale of the raven pole in Pioneer Square, Seattle. Most active 1950 - 1970. All his work were exact replicas of British Columbia - Alaskan totems. Thought many were disappearing from decay and wanted to make sure they lived on. He literally carved multiple scaled versions of totems from the size of a match stick on up. This 12'6" was purchased in 2005 from Mr. Parker's son and has always been inside. Thunderbird, orca, beaver, frog and kolus.
PERIOD: Circa 1970
