Guardian Spirit holding a Canoe;
City of Duncan founder, William Chalmers Duncan; Thunderbird, Killerwhale (dorsal fin added); and Woman who represents our Chief Makers, who is holding a Frog. These figures are based on stories of the Cowichan Valley tribes.
Five salmon adorn the back, again representing the five tribes, with tertiary lines that represent fish weirs. There are also water splashes that represent the mountains and the rivers within the area.
