Fine Authentic Old Northwest Coast Haida Argillite Totem Rufus Moody
A fine complex Haida argillite totem pole by master Haida carver Rufus Moody. The totem is an ambitious composition featuring Frog, chief holding Raven to his chest, two of raven's children, killer whale holding a diving seal and small whale at the base, and a frog form base. Signed Rufus Moody CM to base. Rufus received the medal of Canada in 1976 and signed his poles CM after this date. This totem is one of the very best I have seen by him and from the pinnacle of his career. The totem stands 8 1/2" tall x a frog form base measuring 2 7/8" x 2 3/4 and is in fine condition with no damages or repairs noted. Rufus Moody came from a the wolf clan of the Tanu and was from a long lineage of carvers. The totem is fully guaranteed to be 100 % real argillite, hand carved and old.

Argillite is the slate black rock that is only found in the Queen Charlotte Islands of British Columbia and all known reserves are the sole and closely guarded property of the Haida tribe. This museum quality totem will make a great display item and a fine addition to anyone's collection.
