A New Civic Center and Totem Pole

The city of Sequim, Washington has a new civic center, and standing in front of it is a colorful, wood carved totem pole artistically crafted by members of the S’Klallam Tribe. Here are a few snapshots of this beautiful work of art.

  1. Beautifully colourful and richly detailed. We have a number of totem poles in one of our museums, and I came across one the other day while visiting a spot in my city I’ve never been at.

    • I’m really fascinated by these works of art. I love the bright and contrasting colors! Isn’t it funny how we come across things in our own cities that we’ve never seen before? Just goes to show you how we should take the time to seek out new places and things, even in our own cities that we been living in for decades.

  2. The artistry of the four native Americans that made this happen is truly a gift from above.
    Absolutely delightful. One of my favorite places on the planet

    It’s not easy to capture a totem pole in a photo, but you found a way. I like seeing both the pole in its entirety and also each section in detail.

    • Yes, these sort of tall, straight objects are hard to capture well with a camera lens. I was thinking about this at the time I was standing in front of the totem pole and decided to dissect its parts, so to speak. Glad you enjoyed the images!

Thank you!
