.....but what is it?
This fellow is a resident on it.
Be warned - it is huge!
And it features this guy too...........
I see that folks are checking this out but none has come forward to hazard a guess.
1. This structure is situated in the Lower Mainland.
2. Construction was completed in 1990
It wasn't built by British Columbians - a tribe from overseas did it.
It doesn't seem to be associated with the Museum of Anthropology at UBC.
No, Laurie, it's not. In fact, it's across in the opposite end of town.
It's set amongst a garden with some of the oldest and biggest ornamental cherry trees in the Lower Mainland, and a nice rose garden.
Some more pics...
totems or carved poles at the top of Burnaby mountain on sfu campus
You know what you are talking about but it's not exact enough. Anybody care to elaborate?
How elaborate do you wanna get?
there are a set of totems /carvings up at the horizon restaurant. They are on the North west slope. That is the area and the totems I am thinking of!!
I just checked in with google earth.
Thanks for the hints, gentleman, but back to anthropology.
Kamui Mintara â€“ Playground of the Gods, carved by by Nuburi Toko and his son, Shusei of the Ainu (remaining only in Hokkaido, but formally inhabiting northern Tohoku, the Kurile Islands, and Sakhalin), telling a story of men, gods, and creatures sharing the Earth in harmony.
Ainu people see elements of nature as 'spiritual beings', and they call them kamui; plant kamui are said to have come down to Moshiri (Earth) from Mintara (heaven). See: http://www.snowjapan.com/e/features/niseko-magic-10.html.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful sculpture in Burnaby Mountain Park with us.
Just what I am looking for, Laurie.
