Where Does Art Reside ?

Art Quote of the Day

Leave a comment

” Monumental carvings , otherwise known as totem poles, moved from houseposts to  funerary containers to memorial markers. Since they were traditionally made of wood, most have deteriorated over time, so dating the ceremonial monuments is difficult. We’re not going to worry about dating them; we’re going to concern ourselves with making our own.  Yor task is to create your own totem pole. While historically, totem  poles evolved  to represent social status, yours is going to tell the story of your typical day or week.  On a sheet of sketch paper, create a design for your own daily or weekly emotional totem pole.”
