Mungo Martin House
Victoria, BC .
Mungo Martin was hired in 1952 by the Royal British Columbia Museum to create works of Northwest Coastal Art as display pieces and examples. The result was Wawadit'la, a Kwakwaka'wakw "big house", at Thunderbird Park in front of the museum. He also constructed a huge totem pole, carved out of cedar, standing 160 feet tall. It was raised in 1956 and remained standing until 2000.
