Tiny 1" hand painted ceramic model of Thunderbird totem, similar in style to pole on trinket box (193.) which was purchased at same time.
Pole is very reminiscent of the Patrick Seale style models see 109/108.
Black Pearlite model crowned with an Eagle with wings outspread. Model appears to be the inspiration for the slightly cruder and more garish No. 73
Note the slight curve to the pose of the Eagle, this feature is more exagerrated on No.73 and I assumed it to be a moulding error.
Seven inch approx. Standard black resin, broken and repaired at some point. The break occurred just below the Wasco or Sea Wolf's pectoral fins and has not been attached straight. I am debating whether to try and separate it and re-set.
Good rendition of Raven on the top, with Sea Wolf and Beaver below.
Amber coloured resin totem made by Aalco of Vancouver. Unique design featuring two separate poles on a dedicated stand.
The smaller totem seems to show a wolf or possibly a bear, supporting a killer whale, topped by an Eagle. The larger one echoes the base design, the lower figure seems to have more pronounced ursine features - such as long claws - with a mans face above supporting a Thunderbird with wings outstretched.
The resin and paint style is reminiscent of Pearlite designs No.s 86-89
