Kolus, Totem Pole Plaque, painted - wood carving by Troy Roberts
A villager, while walking along the beach, was said to have come across a very large bird covered in dazzling white, soft down.

He cried out to the bird, "I, Tlugwala, am seeking special powers and privileges from a spirit." The bird then threw back the feathers and skin from its head, revealing the head of a man and said, "I am Kolus, yet I am a man."

His face was steaming with heat because of his thick covering of feathers, and soon his entire coat fell away and there stood the full figure of a man.

Carved in detail from red cedar and painted with acrylic paint.
