Totem Lodge by Karli Powers

The Totem Lodge Mailbox was inspired by the historic totem pole that stood at Totem Lodge Country Club on Burden Lake from 1904-1958. The Totem pole featured classic Alaskan symbols as well as humorous and personal touches added on by its owner. The sides are painted using a geometric pattern mirroring the shapes and symbols from the Totem pole with silhouetted pine trees throughout. The totem pole and country club are gone, but this mailbox is a reminder of the grand and unique history our town possesses. Click on the image below to enlarge it further!
