[Grief] Totemic gifts

I was one of those wierdos who got the initial set of all 4 Totemic Gifts. 
When they arrived the CD case were fairly smashed up, but luckily the CDs 
and the Totems themselves were all in good condition. I took each one of the 
Totems out and examined them. One thing I noticed was that the red paint on 
the Wood one started to flake off in my hand, which I took to be an 
encouraging sign of it's "handmade-ness". I think my favourite Totem of the 
inital four is the Bone - I just think it looks the coolest.

I agree that with the addition of TWO new Totemic Gifts, it's all got a bit 
out of hand! But when has anything to do with TG recently been 
straightforward? I think we've come to expect suprises - both nice and 
strange.

Apart from the very TG-like fetishistic quality of them, does anybody have 
any theories as to what the Totemic Gifts represent? Are they supposed to 
have any spiritual or occult significance? It's intruiging to me that the 
Gifts, and the mountain on the cover of the album are all very nature-based, 
and not very urban, or "industrial"! My own feeling is that they represent 
somewhat of a gravitation on TG's part towards themes of nature and the 
earth. Does anybody else have any theories?
