The Tsimshian and the Haida totem poles from the Northwest Pacific Coast of America are among the most impressive wood sculptures ever produced. Bizarre motifs from the world of shamans and fables were alienated, transposed, or cubistically stylized. Together, they form an expressive piece of art. As an approach to this fascinating wood culture, we will create a totem pole on a reduced scale (approx. 0.6 m) from basswood, using the original iconography. We will carve a totem pole with two motifs.

Ed Bryant

Ed Bryant belongs to the indigenous people of the Tsimshian and grew up in a small fishing village at the Canadian west coast, where he was taught the special carving techniques of this tribe. Today, his mythological sculptures are among the most outstanding samples of contemporary Indian art. His objects are made of wood, bone and ivory and can be found in Canadian, but also European museums, galleries and private art collections.Ed Bryant
