This awesome sight was the delivery of our new totem pole log for the Duncan Galaxy Motors dealership on June 2nd 2016!

Take a good look at this giant log because this week it will be carved by well known local native artisan Harold Joe.

Totem Carving Progress!

Our Duncan dealership has reports and photos of progress on turning this once-tree-now-log into a beautiful totem pole! It may not look like much but we’re just getting started!

Totem Carving at Galaxy Motors in Duncan

Bark work bites, but someone has to do it, and this totem won’t carve itself!

You can start to see how much of the wood that needs to be removed from this massive log by looking at the base of the totem. That’s a lot of hard work!

Harold Joe Totems & Canoes

Harold Joe Sr. began carving at a very young age of 12, learning the craft from his grandparents. Today Harold is very active within the Cowichan community. He’s an Elder-in-Residence for the VIU, does student support services for School District 79, and he’s a support worker for the Breakfast club at Hiiy’yu Lelum.

With over 62 years of carving experience, Harold is more than qualified to work on this beautiful new 30 foot totem that was supplied in partnership with the Teal Jones group.

Renovations to Galaxy Motors Duncan

It’s been a lot of planning and waiting for everything to come together but the Duncan Galaxy Motors dealership is undergoing renovations to serve our customers better!
