Totem Pole - Talismans of my People

North American Indians use the medium of a totem pole to represent their history and mythology. I love the medium, but I'm not a Native American. So, I created a ceramic totem pole that reflects some of the more important talismans relevant to my life, as a 20th-21st century Californian.
