This intriguing and finely detailed Native Northwest totem sculpture stands 14 1/2 inches tall on a 4 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch rectangular base. Handcrafted in Vancouver, British Columbia the figure is a replica of a Haida Argillite totem honoring an esteemed ancestor, or telling of encounters with animals having supernatural powers.

Bears, wolves, beavers, Thunderbirds are some of the animals represented on these unique totems. Years ago, the Haida Nation carved these totems either from wood, cedar being the most popular choice, or Argillite. Most of the Argillite, a black slate-like stone, came from the Queen Charlotte Islands, also known as Haida Gwaii. Many of the totems were carved from a single piece of Argillite, but because this stone was subject to chipping and flaking, larger totems were often carved from multiple pieces, which were then joined together.

This Pearlite/cast stone statue is an accurate representation of the Haida Argillite totems and was handcrafted and hand painted. This substantial figure, weighing over 8 1/2 pounds before packaging, has Abalone eyes on the Grizzly Bear at the top of the totem. We do note some scuffing and wear to the base area and the smooth backside, but this is minor.

The gold foil label attached to the backside reads, Pearlite, Handcrafted in Canada, Vancouver B.C. This totem is a fascinating example of diverse artwork, representing part of the history and culture of the Native North West Haida.
