The interplay between tradition and innovation is the premise for this contemporary totem pole.  While cedar wood predominates, noted Haida artist, Geoff Greene has applied his foresight in designing traditional Haida motifs in the contemporary medium of glass.  It makes a strong visual statement with its structured Haida form line, yet the translucent nature of the glass softens the composition, clearly defining the progression of Haida art.  From the top, the Eagle is portrayed perched, with the Raven and Moon following. The Eagle signifies peace and friendship, while the Raven is the folk hero who created the Moon, stars and the universe. The Bear, at the base of the totem, is a close relative to mankind known to share both human and animal traits.
