You da man Capt'n Seeky, you're going from masterpiece to another masterpiece each time.
Love the contrast between the smooth and chiseled textures.

Bravo,

Benjamin.

Some times ago I've write on this thread: "You have picked the legacy of Bill Reid"
And now everyone know that's true!

This pole is really good carve! We recognize what your own style, in the texture of the sasquatch's fur or on the face of rain man, not forget the frog ... Yet this great wood pole seems come out of the mists of time!

Some questions:
What the total size? between 3 or 4 meters.
What kind of wood is it? Western red Cedar?
And the weight?
It is possible to see side view pics? for details wings.
You'll still decorate with paint? And after varnish?
You think what US mail make a good price to international shipping? (forgot this question, I derailed...)

Well I'll stop here, it's time to leave...
One more time congrat for this spectacular carving!

J.


PS: Tall lono look very happy shiny on the spring sun!

Damn Dude! That thing is killer! Way to go off the resevation on this one. My friend who got me into carving has a good friend that is a Haida Indian and showed him the ropes in carving. I love this carve. I am impressed as ever. Amazing a Boeing worker has this much vision beyond sitting in the shitter reading the paper at work( Inside joke here) Former Boeing worker will understand. Carve on dude!

Well Seeks this latest post leaves me pretty much speechless. So I'll
just keep quiet and let others tell you how great these carvings are.
Your NW totem is a stunner.
