Totem Poles

While visiting Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, I took this photos of the totem poles.

According to the park’s website: “Totem poles are unique to the north west coast of BC and lower Alaska. They were carved from western red cedar and each carving tells of a real or mythical event. They were not idols nor were the worshipped. Each carving on each pole has a meaning.”
