T h e   T o t e m

In 2017, I could realize the project "Sculptures at the trail around Speicher",  together with other wood carvers and the support of a local bank, local district councils and forest wardens. In about 330 hours, I carved the Totem, towering to a height of 6 meters and put 1 meter into a concrete tube into the ground.

Video about the Totem on YouTube, created by wickispeicher.ch out of my video clips.

Where I got the inspiration from

During a long trip all over the Trans-Canadian Highway in 2012, I took many pictures of totems in British Columbia, others I found with Google.

On our walks during wintertime we often look for The Totem. The oak wood changed into grey within the years.
