Yesterday I posted a picture of this Inukshuk for my Silent Sunday post and had such a range of confused comments, I thought I should take this opportunity to link up with the lovely Charly at PODcast and explain my picture.
This is an Inukshuk.
Inukshuk means “in the likeness of a person” or thereabouts and is traditionally used by Inuits to mark a safe passage, a place of respect, a good hunting ground or similar.
They can be seen all over rural Canada, at the lookout point at the end of a hike, along the roads or as shown here along the shores of Georgian bay.
I don’t suppose this one was built by an Inuit! but I still think they are a thing of beauty and I was very pleased to get a half decent shot of these ones.
