inukshuk

Posted on Updated on



Welcome to wonderful Vancouver 2010, originally uploaded by D-K-D.

We’re going to see a lot of this icon. What doesn’t get noted often enough is that this inukshuk was created by Alvin Kanak of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut and given as a gift to the city for Expo 86. So credit goes to Alvin for inspiring the marketing approach taken by the Vancouver Olympic games with his powerful sculpture.
