Killer Whale Totem, 2017
Introducing the newest monumental work by Preston Singletary to be cast in lead crystal, “Killer Whale Totem”.
Following the success completion of the “Family Story Totem” series, the "Killer Whale Totem" shows Singletary’s clan crest (Killer Whale) in the center, his moiety (Eagle) on top, and a Thunderbird in the center that represents David Svenson, the carver of the wooden pole and one of Singletary’s mentors. The Thunderbird emerges from the mouth of the Killer Whale, which represents Swenson’s crest symbol. At the bottom is the Wolf design, the original moiety for the tribe, which was replaced by the contemporary depiction of an Eagle.
The “Killer Whale Totem” will be created in a limited edition of three, each one in a different color. The large-scale piece in lead crystal is appropriate for both private residences and public spaces. Please contact the Preston Singletary Studio with inquiries.
