The Guardian Inukshuk Canadian symbol
This is an Inukshuk and it is one of Canada’s symbols. This structure made of stones, generally represents a human person. The ancient Inuit people from the cold zones of the Arctic used it as a landmark, indicating directions. It says something like: “I’ve been here, it’s safe.” The translation of the word Inukshuk from the Inuit language is “stone man that points the way.” In other worlds, it’s the Canadian travelers guardian 🙂
Ancient people used to build these large structures from balanced rocks in a common team effort. Therefore, this also symbolizes union. We have to admit that being together was a survival condition in the cold unfriendly territories of Northern Canada. The symbol was also beautifully depicted on the 2010 Vancouver Olympics flag.
Inukshuk photos and art prints
I saw this Inukshuk sculpture standing up on the Ontario lake shore in Collingwood, Ontario Canada. In the magic light of the sunset over the lake, it looked to me like a Guardian with some kind of supernatural powers… The photo is available as art print on various media and sizes. Here is how it can look like framed. Just click on it to see all the options:
But, you can see these kind of structures often in Canada. They can be large or small. Here in Labrador, an Inukshuk family is welcoming people to St. Lewis town (more like a village). Is it not fascinating to see the local people’s creativity?
