The Horniman Museum London Art Print. 


Honestly this was a pleasant surprise on my visit to Horniman, and not what I had excpected to see - a native american totem pole in South London!


The museum, the clocktower, the mosaic- all spectacular but I chose this angle to make the totem pole the 'hero' as it's such a unique and interesting piece against the contrasting architecture of the building itself.


London’s first Alaskan totem pole, It was carved by Nathan Jackson, a Tlingit from Alaska, at the Museum of Mankind from 15 May to 15 June 1985. The 20-foot high structure of carved red cedar, painted with specially imported ‘ranch paint’, was unveiled in its present position on 29 June 1985.

An eagle, Nathan Jackson’s main clan crest, is at the top of the pole. Beneath is a girl with a bag and a grizzly bear, illustrating a legend from the North West Coast of America of a girl who married a bear.


I loved doing the illustration, and including details like some colourful guests from the butterfly house making an appearance in the gardens.
