Ilanaaq, the inukshuk - 2010 snow sculpture

Ilanaaq, the Inukshuk is the official mascot for the 2010 Vancouver-Whistler winter olympic games. This ice sculpture can be found outside the light board in the front of the Whistler Roundhouse.

 

The inukshuk is a traditional symbol and marker used by the Inuit people and even appears on the flag of Nunavut. Read more about it here.
