This sign was commisioned by the Village of Tofino to be installed at the entrance of the cemetery grounds in Tofino. The joy of this project is that the sign will be largly viewed by the tofino families who have loved ones resting there. Many of the iniatives our community are tourist related and not so much for the locals. Its nice some times to take care of those who have built this place into what it is today.
The sign made of Red Cedar and is 13 feet long and 3 feet wide 2 1/2 inches thick. The district logo is carved and painted. A fun thing for me to explore the mixing of primary colours. The poles are also Red Cedar and I have hand carved them. Adzing is the name of the technique, from the tool called an adze.
