Totem Pole  Dudley Carter, artist. Carved wood and paint

Dudley Carter died in 1992 at age 100 having spent his later years as an Artist-in-Residence at Marymoor Park in Redmond. He grew up in British Columbia among the Haida and Kwakiutl Indians, learning the stories and craft that he would later use in his art, carving his monumental wood sculptures with an axe as well as smaller tools. This pole, donated to the City by a private collector, is typical of Carter's work.
