Rock with Petroglyphs

This rock has petroglyphs carved into it.  These petroglyphs were apparently carved
at the same time Alexander MacKenzie carved his name in the rocks.

The figure on the bottom is holding a copper on his chest. This totem tells part of the creation myth - it was carved by Bruce Alfred in 1995. It's part of the Nimpkish Burial Grounds in Alert Bay.

Jonathan Hunt's Totem
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.

Mungo Martin's Totem
The totem on the right is written up in Hillary Stewart's book - The pole was carved by Henry Hunt and Tony Hunt in 1970 as a memorial for Mungo Martin. Mungo Martin is one of the hero's in the Kwakiutal society - he was a prolific totem carver and one of the important links that brough the traditional artistic skills and knowledge out of the banned pot latch era. This totem pole was the first totem raised in Alert bay in 40 years.

The top figure is Kolus (the crest of Mungo's father from Gilford Island) followed by Cedar Man with a talking stick. The second from bottom figure is Raven caved in memory of David Martin. The bottom figure is Dzunukwa, the crest of Mungo's wife Abaya'a.

The pole on the left (Thunderbird, Bear holding a whale's tail, Raven, Whale, Dzunukwa) was carved by Charlie James as a memorial for Amos Dawson's uncle.

Missing Eagle Arm Totem
This is an older totem, but it's painted. The figures are Thunderbird, Killer Whale, Man holding a copper, Dzunukwa. Apparently the carver and the date of carving is unknown. I've since taken a closer photo.

Petroglyph of Seal in Fulford Harbour

From what I know of, this petroglyph (the large eyes, the mouth open with teeth)
means seal. There are petroglyphs on Gabriola and Seals as well.
