WELCOME FIGURE BY DARREN YELTON 16DY11

  A Welcome Figure was typically a freestanding monumental pole erectic by Coast Salish peoples at the entrance of a community. The human figure istypically portrayed with extended arms open to show no weapons as a sign of welcome. This pole is carved from traditional red cedar and paint has been applied to accentuate only the features of the individual. Darren has signed the bottom of the piece.
