This contemporary inukshuk is made out of individually carved pieces of black chlorite, then assembled to form the body. I love the idea of this human form being a symbol of safety, hope and friendship. I took a rather contemporary take on this traditional Inuit structure. This inukshuk sits on a dark green piece of soapstone that has wonderful flecks that catch the light. I have left one side of the soapstone uncarved as the natural movement of the stone was quite beautiful, and it gave a completely different look to the piece.
This piece is currently available through the Allied Arts Council Gallery in Spruce Grove.
