Inuksuk

23 Apr

This is an inuksuk. I found this figures in souvenir shops in
Vancouver when I visited April 2006. They are extremely cute!

According to Wikipedia, an inuksuk is a stone landmark used as a milestone or directional marker by the Inuit of the Canadian Arctic. Inuksuit vary in shape and size, and perform a diverse array of tasks. It is a symbol with deep roots in the Inuit culture, a directional marker that signifies safety, hope and friendship. An inunguak is an inuksuk in human form, and is featured on the 2010 Olympic logo.
