Totem Pole Meaning...

A while back, I posted some pictures of my husband's totem pole.  Well, a few folks have asked him to describe what each animal/character means to him so here goes (in order from top to bottom):

Thunderbird- represents power and good luck., the most powerful spirit, giving power to creative hands
Salmon- power of life force to humans and animals
Sun- provider of healing energy
Beaver- hard work
Owl- silent wisdom, with a rose for love of family
Bear- strength and humility, has a heart for love of making things, and knife for carving wood
Eagle- healing strength- power-wisdom in flight with snake to remove evil from heart and home
Anchor- represents my husband's initials back to back JG and anchors also represent faith.
Dogfish- Persistence

Jerry really appreciates all the kind words about his totem pole.  He worked on it for a long time and he really loves how it turned out.
