Totem Pole Detail
British Columbia Totem Pole Detail, 1988

 

I'm interested here in the faces in the bear paws, they're quite similar to the one created by the tree leaves in the Linda Tellington-Jones photograph.

It has been mentioned to me that the bear paw faces are a classic representation of a shaman in trance. While I may have felt the energy that way at differing times in my life, I didn't know this about the imagery directly myself. I do know that if you spend time with Linda around animals, you will feel and notice her effect on them.

This totem pole stands at a decaying, abandoned homesite located on a small un-named island along Canada's Inside Passage.
