Boo-Qwilla: At The Foot Of Greatness

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

  Maggie loves exploring Stanford University campus. It has many worlds of wonder in one location and is very dog friendly. One treasure visited by Maggie is the Boo-Qwilla totem pole. It’s greatness dwarfed her. Animals of all kinds are artistically displayed by Canadian artist Art Thompson. Maggie likes this magical totem. At the base a supernatural Killer whale turns into a Wolf. Maggie had a kindred connection when she sat at the foot of greatness. Maybe it was the transformed Wolf she connected with?

On this Nuu-chah-nulth totem pole, Thunderbird, with wings outstretched, towers overhead. He perches on top of Raven, the creator of Earth, Light, and Consciousness. Raven’s wings encompass the headdress of Boo-Qwilla, a person of knowledge, wisdom, and achievement. Legend affirms this ancestral human is Raven’s most prized creation who is charged with the safekeeping of knowledge and the preservation of the earth. At the base, a supernatural Killer whale transforms into a Wolf. This creature possesses magical healing powers which aid humankind.

    thanks for letting me know about this on my blog.. it is a beautiful totem pole. where I live, there are a lot of totem poles in the downtown core (which is very small) and they have regular “totem tours” which is a walkabout around town led by someone who knows all about each one. totems are an amazing combination of art and culture.

    That tongue! We’re thinking about having a longest tongue competition for our passengers – Maggie would have a serious chance of matching the best we’ve seen 😀
