Healing Heart Pole
This totem located in Craig, AK on Prince of Wales Island was carved by Tsimshian Master Carver Stan Marsden as a memorial to his son who died of a drug overdose on the ferry. Note the intricately carved basket of roses. When I was shooting this photo in 1998 a woman stopped to tell me how the entire small community of Craig helped carve this pole and proudly said she had helped carve the basket of roses.
