Conversation, Thunderbird Park, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, 2009

Conversation, Thunderbird Park, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, 2009

Man has always made gods out of nature. Indians who once lived in British Columbia carved this totem pole a religious symbol out of what once was a living tree. It stands in a park full of totem poles, and full of living trees as well. I used my frame to pair one of them with this pole. It is almost as if they are having a conversation.

You are right. If it's wood doing the talking here, we've got to include the wooden fence. (Actually, it the exterior wall of a reproduction of an Indian Long House.)

I see three participants: the wooden totem pole, the tree, and the wooden fence like an audience. The green grass and leaves make me think it's a "lively" conversation.
