TOTEM - EAGLE, MAN, BEAR, FROG WITH COPPER
Carved in the round, this red cedar totem pole depicts Eagle, atop Man, with Bear & Frog with a Copper in bottom portion. Traditionally, Eagle is a spiritual messenger who carries Mans prayers to the Creator. Bear symbolizes family & strength. Because Frog begins life in the water and then moves to the land, it represents adaptability, change & transformation. A “Copper” is a symbol of wealth & prestige, beaten into a shape that superficially represents a shield. Coppers are usually painted or engraved with traditional designs or crests. Coppers may have names given to them to allow their worth & heritage to be passed on.
