Ahhhh ....another weekend come and gone. Working weekends really taps into my Photography time....so much so that I'm not sure I will be able to post everyday anymore. But I'm an optimist and we will see. Anyway I wanted to show you some of the wonderful work our Native Aboriginal People do here on the Island. Totem poles are carvings made out of wood (Cedar) that tell stories from the bottom to the top. These stories I believe come from life experiences. They then tell the stories in carvings, paintings and verbal story telling. These carvings also have a spiritual purpose with all plains of life for the Native Aboriginal People. At the University of Victoria these beautiful totem poles stand in the middle Court yard. So many people come to admire them and to sit on the grass under them to talk or do homework. Quite a popular spot.
