I began carving 3 years ago and have tried a little of everything except chip carving. I am currently self taught. I was at a friends house when I saw that he had some old utility poles. I suggested he get one carved into a totem pole. ....he suggested I do it. I accepted the challenge and this was the result. 25.5 feet tall, 19 inch diameter. Wings are 10 feet. The pole is western red Cedar. I tried to follow traditional patterns but I have never seen a pole in person. It took a little over 3 months to carve.
