This spread-legged, stretch-armed Inukshuk figurine became a Canadian symbol during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. The Inuit stone structure is usually made of boulders of rocks and is meant to show directions on the frozen arctics. The name Inukshuk means, find your way home.

7.25″ x 4″ x 2.25″           18 x 10 x 5.5 cm.                 0.820 kg.

The stone is a black natural slate with a silvery sheen. Hand cut, carved and hand polished with water base sandpapers to a satin shine. Pinned and stone epoxy glued on the matching base and that’s where the figurine signed too. See the 360 video here

The slate is a very nice rare-to-find material, with no foliations and cracks in it, however, a few white lines of another mineral most likely quartz show on the surface. Slate is one of the most durable stones, it has a 0.4 % water absorption that is resistant even to freezing. It is not a typical carving stone but I just couldn’t resist using it. Slate is a fine-grained stone that allows only a satin shine and a very smooth surface.

this Canadian symbol is found everywhere here around Vancouver, and this small version is thoughtful home decor for Canuck identity.

The sale price includes free shipping to Canada and USA.
