Traditionally, a totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe. The totemic symbol may serve as a reminder of the kin group’s ancestry or mythic past. Belief in tutelary spirits and deities is not limited to indigenous peoples, but, common to a number of contemporary cultures worldwide. Artists will be presenting works in various mediums that will explore personal or cultural totems.
