The totem on the right is written up in Hillary Stewart's book - The pole was carved by Tony Hunt (Jonathan's grandson) with Calvin Hunt, John Livingston and Peter Knox in 1976.

The top figure is Kolus followed by Cedar Man holding a copper, beneath is Sun in Human form, also holding a copper. The bottom is the killer whale, head turned downward. Jonathan Hunt was a good friend of Mungo Martin and his son.

The pole on the left (Eagle, Whale with a man on its back, Sea Otter/Bear? with a copper in its mouth, Bullhead/Cod/Sculpin?, Man) was carved in the early 1940's.
