Re: InterKingdom Potlach ....

In keeping with the NW Indian theme, I suggest that the centerpiece of
Atlantia's gifts might be a pole carved with the totemic animals of all
of the Laurel Kingdoms, in order of precedence.

Some possible problems would have to be resolved first:

Do all of the Kingdoms have mascots that lend themselves to such
a carving?  The Atlantian Seahorse, the Eastern Tygre, and the
Calontiri Falcon would all look great; I don't know what other
strands have.

Would having the older Kingdoms above the younger ones imply a
false hierarchy, and thereby insult the younger Kingdoms?

Could the Potlach be held at a site that would allow a massive
tree truck to be set in the ground, or, failing that, could the
pole be safely displayed in a more temporary setting?

Where would the pole come from?

Who would carve it?
