Massett Haida pole carving

Subseries consists of photographs documenting the carving of a totem pole by Jim Hart for MOA. The slides document the entire process of carving from start to finish. The totem pole is listed as the House Frontal Totem Pole on the MOA catalogue, carved by artist Jim Hart, purchased by MOA, and raised on October 12, 1982. McLennan noted that the pole was carved based on fragments of an old pole which came to MOA in 1948. These fragments remain in a carving shed.
