Traditionally, Spirit Poles are placed on the land to mark significant areas. Group them together, in varying sizes, to create a stunning presence (click through the images to see an example). Equally beautiful indoors, on a patio or in a special area of your home.

With this creation, Tarisse wanted to translate her “Campsites” story into a 3D object. The choice to use metal is a reflection on the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over the centuries.

Campsites Story

Australian Indigenous culture is well known for its nomadic lifestyle. Tarisse often reflects on the fact that her ancestors would constantly move from one campsite to another to find a better food and water source, and for better shelter to suit the seasonal conditions.

Note: A white insert was used for photography, to highlight the carved design. The spirit pole is hollow, and the cut-out shows the metal behind.
