About This Image

"Inukshuk" landmark overlooking the Burrard Inlet and out towards the Pacific Ocean, at Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Inukshuk is an ancient symbol of the Inuit culture, traditionally used as a landmark and navigational aid, and also represents Northern hospitality and friendship. Inukshuk is a welcoming symbol visible at nights, as it is illuminated.
Inukshuk is made from grey granite, and was made by Alvin Kanak of Rankin Inlet, B.C.

thanks for your always encouraging comments, Alex D, and always appreciated. glad you liked it. Would like to return there when there's a nice sunset, and perhaps some ships anchored out there.

thanks again, Cindy. It is awe inspiring. I did read a better description of what it symbolizes, so will add that asap. It does have alot of meaning behind it.
