Totem Pole - The Spirit of the Eagle 9"
Alaska Black Diamond uses yellow cedar in from the rainforests surrounding Ketchikan, Alaska to create these beautiful, hand-carved totem poles. This totem is authentic; a great symbol of Alaska Northwest Coast native tradition.
Due to the nature of handmade crafts, there may be a slight wood-color variance from the totem pictured.
Each totem is signed by the artist and includes a story card to share the legends represented in each pole.
The Spirit of the Eagle
“Eagle flying high could not believe what he saw. Bear had yet another salmon in his paw. If Eagle had a human face as he stared down, then across it you would find a mightily large frown. "Don't you think you're being just a little bit greedy?" He said to Bear his eyes small and beady.
"Begone!" Bear said with a very loud roar. And so he did. Eagle did soar.
"So eat them all, I don't care. Just see how well your tummy will fare." Later that day Eagle flew back with a crow. They found Bear asleep next to the river's flow. His tummy was big. No, a better word is huge.
Eagle laughed, you could tell he was amused. You ate all the salmon you sleepy fool. Now as you lie there with your tummy ache you'll sleep all winter in a hibernate state.
Now, I can eat all I want and laugh and tease, fly and taunt. This is more than an eagle could ever want.”
