Inukshuk Soapstone Carving Hand carved in Canada
Inukshuks (pronounced ‘in-ook-shook’) literally translates to “likeness of a person” or “in the image of man” in the Inuit language Inuktitut. These stone structures is a well known symbol in the Canadian North. Inukshuks are formed from rock piles that resemble the shape of a person with arms stretching out. The original purposes of Inukshuks are to landmark directions of the paths of animals for hunting, directions to communities and where caches of food are for travelers were stored.
These Inukshuks are each unique hand carved by one of our local artists in Kitchener, ON specially for Stonebridge Imports. They are beautiful gifts and decoration accents perfect for any age.
