Derived from structures in the Alaska and Canadian Artic, this small replica of an Inukshuk is bound to be a great conversation piece in your home or cabin. The dimensions of this Inukshuk is 14 ½ “ wide x 4” deep x 10” high. This is an example of one of our latest creations. The dimensions of the piece you receive may vary slightly depending on the stone we have in stock. Below is a little more information about the Inukshuk. Inukshuk, pronounced in-ook-shook, are stone monuments erected in the image of humans. One of their purposes was to communicate direction in the harsh and desolate Arctic. As such they were a tool for survival, and symbolic of the the unselfish acts of a nomadic people - the Inuit - who built them as signposts to make the way easier and safer for those who followed. I have added some actual photographs of real size Inukshuks for you to view. For more information about the Inuit group of people and Inukshuks, just type in “Inukshuk” in any Internet search engine and you will get all sorts of information about this unusual stone structure.
