I enjoy walking among the totem poles here in the Grand Hall when I stop in for a visit.
This portion of one in closeup has character.
From the far end of the hall, this totem pole is framed by the staircase going up. And there's a sculpture down there at the left. You may have spotted it in yesterday's post.
This is a plaster cast sculpture by the artist Bill Reid, called The Spirit Of Haida Gwaii. There is a bronze casting of this sculpture at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, and another in the Vancouver airport. Another sculpture by Reid is elsewhere in the museum, and I'll show you that before we're done.
It's an impressive and big sculpture.
