Totem Pole
About this creation
This is a Totem pole I built months ago that has been a WIP for too long. I'm affraid I have no more time to finish it as I would like as Lego Birds are my priority. This does have some relevence to birds though it has a firebird at the top.

I've always had a facination with Totem Poles and the stories they hold and wish I had more time to finish it. I still think it's worthy of being posted before it is reincarnated to a Lego Bird though.





I'm quite proud of the wing design here but it would be no good for my birds as the wings are too fat.









It could have been much better if I spent more time on it but hey I think it looks pretty good as it is and I need the pieces for future projects.

Hope you like!

P.S. If you haven't supported my Lego Bird Project over on CUUSOO please do, you would make me a very happy man ;-)

a totem is totemly original! it s the best I have seen, as I never saw one worth remebering I guess, although it does nt represent anything very special to me, I find their mystical myth appealing, + I feel an old west urge for months now, sergio leone s pieces playing in my living room, horses, saloons, so your totem falls right into my lap! great idea tom!

Quoting David Alexander Smith Stupid iPad, honestly I do know how to spell palette, it's in the first line of my home page, I went to art school and still paint. Auto-spell checks combined with touch keyboards are a nightmare; I swear they conspire against you.
Yeah I know what you mean, I use my iPhone a lot and it keeps wanting to change me to mr. It really annoys me lol

Awesome job! Looks like some cool techniques and NPU. We have lots of these around where I live.

This looks fantastic. Sometimes that Rainbow Warrior look makes a MOC look sloppy, but you have certainly found an exception to that rule. Multicolored bricks definitely look awesome in the case of the totem pole. The bird topper looks perfect. Great work!

Quoting Gale Winthrope Apparently those Indians do not like the bird very much. To be lower on the totem pole, contrary to popular belief, actually means that you are more respected and worshiped. So with that bird being on top he is less worshiped than the others, not that I see anything below him lol. Excellent build and I love those wings.
Interesting. Most Totem poles I saw on google images had the bird at the top and imo it wouldn't look so good with the bird lower down. The plan was to make the totem pole with 5 animals on it but that never came to fruition lol Thanks for your continued support on my creations Gale!
