Totems

My early fascination for tribal artworks has led me to create my personal collection of totems. After studying a range of tribal totems and wooden statues my sculptural totems showcase a variety of stylistic characteristics within my own designs. Tribal totems originally served ritual purposes in different ancient cultures. My totems are purely intended for decorative use are created from concrete, bamboo or wood and sealed for outdoor suitability.
