Restoring a piece of Canadian culture in the Benaki Museum, Athens Greece.
Monday, August 27, 2012
The Totem Pole in Attica project is an interactive look at the restoration of a piece of Canadian aboriginal art now located in Athens Greece. This blog, along with our Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube sites will allow anybody a glimpse at the history, present, and future of this piece of art that now plays the role of Ambassador for Canada in Greece.
In the coming months this site will tell you more about this beautiful totem pole originally carved by Chief Tony Hunt more than 30 years ago. We will keep you up to date on the current restoration project designed to return this pole to it's original glory. There are going to be many opportunities for anybody visiting Greece to see this pole and the restoration work in progress first hand, and we will keep you up to date on where and how you can do this.
