Oklahoma Totem Pole Park
His goal was to create a series of totem poles using sturdier building materials. Using concrete, rebar, and steel reinforcement, he created a number of totems on his land surrounding the Fiddle House which was modeled after a hendecagonal Navajo hogan, and which was supported by a series of cement totems.
The main totem which took Galloway 11 years to finish and and now is the record for largest concrete totem pole in the world. It is completely covered in bright reliefs of animals and characters in a traditional American Indian style.
The entire stack of looming faces and squashed beasts was made to sit on the back of a giant concrete turtle who looks a bit crushed by the weight of the world.
