Carving a totem pole, May update

2015/05/26

Only a few days left before the pole is raised.
The official ceremony will be on June 11th, 2015.

Quite a bit has happened since the last update. Low man on the totem pole wins. Both carvers, Qwaya Sam and Noel Brown were awarded the top parts of their respective poles. Sort of make sense to me to keep the style the same throughout the whole length of the art piece. Unity.

Tackling the top part of the pole, big tools.

Fairly easy to coax family members or passersby to help in rolling and securing the pole.
