The most striking of objects: the totem poles
n The Most Striking of Objects: The Totem Poles of Sitka National Historical Park, Andrew Patrick describes a preservation conundrum that has lasted more than a century. Totem poles of southeastern Alaska constitute a unique cultural expression, yet carved, wooden, earth-fast objects have a limited lifespan. How, then, to preserve such important artifacts? Is carving a replication an acceptable form of preservation? Patrick discusses this and other alternatives in his history of a well-traveled collection of totem poles.
