Vancouver 2010 Inukshuk

2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Logo - Inukshuk !?X !!?? … Made by Inuit from a single piece of local stone found in the Arctic !?!? We have so many symbols of Vancouver and BC but NO we had to borrow something from the Arctic. How many Inuits live in Vancouver. One of the factors for this to be logo of the OUR Olympics – kids can draw it easily … so they can draw “Stick Man” as well. I think absolutely perfect symbol would have been “Spirit Bear” - … but instead we have Inuit “stick man” and mascots that really are more suited to Japanese cartoons


Still I like the sculpture , plus it's in a such a perfect spot that it was a truly a pleasure to take few pictures. This was the last image of the early morning trip to Stanley Park and by that time we were done … no more pictures. I will post few more from the park but bit later.
