Fine Old Northwest Coast Nootka Nuu-chah-nulth Tlingit Indian Cedar Totem C1930
A fine old Northwest Coast Nuu-chah-nulth or possibly Tlingit hand carved and painted cedar totem pole dating from the 1930's-40's. The totem was most likely carved by an early member of the famous Williams family of totem pole carvers. The totem depicts a Thunderbird with a sisuitl (sea serpent design) on its wings, seated human and a diving frog at the bottom. The totem is painted in great original old and striking pigments of yellow, green, blue, red and black. The totem stands 12 1/2" tall with a 8 1/4" wingspan, on a square base measuring 3" x 3" , marked "Ketchikan" to the reverse. The totem makes an impressive display item and a fine addition to anyone's collection.
