Mar Vista shows its spirit with totem pole

by: Observer Staff

Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub lost a few palm trees during a freeze earlier this year, so artist Jeff Chouinard, aka Surf Soul Tiki, helped the restaurant carve a replacement. He replaced the trunks of two trees by carving two totem poles.

One features a happy fisherman with a mahi-mahi; the second is an angry fisherman with a large boot. Chouinard will carve a third totem pole/tree that will be portable.
