Traditionally, the Inukshuk were used by the Inuit as directional markers to help people navigate the cold harsh winters of the North. Built by a group, Inukshuk are the product of cooperation, teaching us that as good as our individual efforts may be, together we can accomplish even greater things. Their strength lies in their unity. They signify friendship and community. This piece was designed after the Inukshuk that watches over Whistler-Blackcomb mountain.
