Absolutely incredibly detailed

Have a close look at the images please - these truly are little Gem's!!!!

Pair of wooden, hand carved Model Totem Poles, by Raymond Williams, a member of the Ditidath First Nation and part of the world wide well known family of master totem pole carvers.

One is painted black, the other stained in a dark brown. The full signature is in the front of the base, the date is underneath the base of the black totem pole - dated 1964! The brown totem is not signed but it clearly shows who the artist is.... So, these are old pieces of art, but the condition is really great considering the age. The brown one does have some tiny losses on the top right side - nothing unexpected. 

But please look at the details, I try to show as many close-ups as I can. They really are remarkable.

Measurements: black: 11" tall, pole is 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" (28 x 4 x 4 cm)

                       brown: 8 1/2" tall, pole is 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" (22 x 3 x 3 cm)
