Inuksuk (Inukshuk) - the cultural symbol of the Inuit people.

WQ1 - This figure is made with natural, untreated white quartz stone and glistens in the light!
Size approx. 3-1/2" x 3-1/4".
Each sculpture is unique - working with stone, some are larger, smaller, slanted, etc.
I take a lot of care in creating these wonderful figures and hope you enjoy this as much
as I enjoyed making it! They are one of a kind!

I was introduced to the Inuksuk, (Inukshuk) during the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver, Canada. Watching the television coverage, this beautiful symbol appeared everywhere, in every size, shape and form. I was quite taken with this symbol and wanted to make my own Inuksuks for home and as gifts for family and friends.

To me, it represents peace, a togetherness of spirit, a reminder of love and respect for our land and wildlife and each other. Although I have a great love for natural stones, I have a small Inuksuk pendant that I tend to wear more than anything else.

For travellers, it is a welcoming sign, a navigation tool and sign that someone else has been on this same journey. Some believe it is a protector of sorts as the areas it is generally found in may have degrees of difficulty or danger.

For further information on this wonderful symbol, there is a lot of
information on the internet – you might want to start with Wikipedia!
