About the work

To commemorate Suncor Energy’s sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games through its Petro-Canada brand,  the company commissioned Squamish Nation carver Klatle-Bhi to create a companion piece to the 1988 Olympic Torch Relay Statue. The Totem pole tells the story of all nations coming together to celebrate the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and highlights the spirits that inhabit the Sea to Sky region including the frog, the bear, the whale and the thunderbird
