The Stanford Legacy is a totem pole by artist Don Yeomans, installed on the Stanford University campus in Stanford, California, United States. The 40-foot (12 m), 4,200-pound artwork was installed outside the Law School on May 6, 2002. It exhibits a traditional Haida style and was carved from an approximately 400-year-old Western red cedar.[1] The totem was cleaned and repainted in 2013.[2][3][4]
