The Northwest Coast Natives have a perception of oneness of all earth's creatures, human and animal. They believe that humans may transform into animals, birds, fish and mythical creatures and back again. Once transformed they take on the essence and spirit of that being, Their art reflects this transformation. Made of black crushed marble, this pole is carved in the traditional style. The Owl, at the top of the pole, symbolizes wisdom. Other carved elements include Bear, Raven and Man.
