Gorgeous dramatic hand carved totem pole in natural varnished wood, featuring an eagle perched on top of a fish. Signed by the artist with the initials “EKK”. Probably West Coast First Nations art, made in the 1960s. According to Spirits of the West Art Gallery, the Totem Eagle is known as “The master of the skies” and is believed to be the creature with the closest relationship with the creator. By soaring great heights, he can travel between the physical world and the spiritual world, and is said to be a messenger to the creator. The Eagle signifies focus, great strength, peace and leadership. The totem pole stands 13 inches high and the outspread wings measure 11 inches across. The wings of an eagle symbolize the balance and co-dependency between males and females, and how each gender must work together in order to achieve harmonious results. The wings of the eagle are beautifully carved with feather-like detail. The wings were carved separately and are attached to the body of the totem pole with a nail. The totem pole is attached to a base circle of bark-on pine, measuring 3 inches in diameter, also with one nail. There is one small chip to the tip of the right wing (please see photos), but otherwise in great vintage shape. Lovely spirit art for your cabin or rustic home.
