Recent Acquisition from the National Museum of the Lost & Found

Traditionally, totems are representations of animals or other figures found in nature which serve to identify a tribe, clan, family or individual, ideas, values and traditions already lost to the group.

In this series of totems, however, actual lost things are represented, such as keys, shoes, jobs, friendships and more. Each artifact is strategically portrayed with one of five different categories which are to accompany an individual through life. Each totem takes the form of a cube, providing an easy way by which to stack them so as to best suit your preference… but remember your configurations may reveal a tad more about you than the totem poles themselves!

These reminds me of tribe! Simple cube to form structure. Hoo!
