Photographer's Note

Inukshuk, meaning "likeness of a person" in Inuktitut (the Inuit language), is a stone figure made by the Inuit. The Inuit make inuksuit in different forms and for different purposes: to show directions to travellers, to warn of impending danger, to mark a place of respect, or to act as helpers in the hunting of caribou. An inukshuk can be small or large, a single rock, several rocks balanced on each other, round boulders or flat. Inuit tradition forbids the destruction of inuksuit.

This one was recently made for decorative purpose only in a park on the bank of a river.
