Spectacular piece by highly collectable and well known First Nation artist RAY WILLIAMS, son of Sam Williams, a member of the Nuuh-chah-nulth (Ditidath) First Nations.

Large, 29" tall Model Totem pole, extremely detailed carving

The artist must have spent month's working on this Gem! It shows superb craftsmanship, lots of patience and love for this art. The pole is showing the Eagle with the Sun above the wolf above the Whale above the frog above the bear and another frog as well as all the little spirit symbols throughout the piece.

It's an old piece, dated handwritten 1974 underneath the base (I can't confirm the exact date and don't know if the artist himself wrote the date on the base)
