Contact with Europeans and Russians created conditions that radically changed the art of column carving. The introduction of iron tools and the increase in overall wealth caused by the fur trade increased the efficiency of the carvers, the detail and quality of their carvings, and the demand for their columns. With these changes, the so-called 8775 golden age 8776 of column carving began roughly one hundred years from the end of the eighteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century. The columns began to display a much larger number of figures, which made them more apt for containing narratives. The Haida on Queen Charlotte Island first began carving these larger and more elaborate narrative poles the practice then spread in varying degrees up and down the coast.
The Raven pole shown in the three photographs above contains this story. It was carved in 6896 for Chief Shakes of a Tlingit tribe, and it stood for eighty-two years before collapsing in a windstorm. After that, a replica was built for a nearby park (Stewart 659). A detailed drawing of each figure on the pole is shown below.
"Ms. Murdock is one of only a tiny number of scholars with the richly diverse academic background (and the necessary courage) to adequately address the question of whether Jesus Christ truly existed as a walking-talking figure in first-century Palestine." David Mills, Atheist Universe
According to the archaeological evidence, the concept of the Four Symbols may have existed as early as China’s Neolithic period (some 6,555 years ago). This is based on some clam shells and bones forming the images of the Azure Dragon and the White Tiger that were found in a tomb in Henan. In addition, it is claimed that one of the artefacts from the tomb of the Marquis Yi of Zeng (c. 988 .) is a lacquer-painted wardrobe with the patterns of the Four Symbols and 78 Mansions.
"I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/. Murdock. I find it undeniable , many of the epic heroes and ancient patriarchs and matriarchs of the Old Testament were personified stars, planets and constellations." Dr. Robert M. Price, The Pre-Nicene New Testament
"Acharya S deserves to be recognized as a leading researcher and an expert in the field of comparative mythology, on a par with James Frazer or Robert Graves indeed, superior to those forerunners in the frankness of her conclusions and the volume of her evidence."
