This totem spent a long life outdoors. Full height with loss at ring carved base. Scattered weather related erosion to surface having protected areas with remnants of what appears to be the original paint. No evidence of later paint. Losses to applied abalone eyes. Back hollowed out at an angle. Guessing early 20th century.
