Talisman as in Totem.
Unfortunately there isn’t a picture of the huge totem standing inside the Chamber of Commerce. The artists making these totems are so incredibly talented.
I haven’t included the magnificent totems at Alert Bay, Malcom Island, Quatsino, Port McNeill and Namgis which hopefully I can do over the next few days. Vancouver Island has a vast array or totems from Port Hardy to Victoria which are brilliant.
If you love totems, take a look at The Copper Maker and Calvin Hunt’s work.
