The Transition totem pole was carved in 1989 by David Marston. It is 5m (16’5″) and is displayed outside 47 Station Street, between Canada Avenue and Craig Street in downtown Duncan.
Carver david Marston explains that the pole is about personal growth and transition.
“The pole represents the family: the mother, the father and the child. The seal represents the family’s food supply. We share the earth with the Killer Whale and the Seal, and they share it with us; we affect each other. The Seal, Killer Whale and Man share the wealth of the sea, namely the salmon.”
