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” - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kermode_bear … but instead we have Inuit “stick man” and mascots that really are more suited to Japanese cartoons www.vancouver2010.com/store-us//catmascot-catmascotpins-p...

    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.

      This looks like a completely different place than what it is... So strange!
      Great photo.

      You are so right about the choice of an Inuit arctic symbol being a bit odd... And the mascots are ridiculous (not even cute).

      How are we going to survive those games I wonder? The city seems so unprepared and I don't even know how my daughter is going to make it with the school bus. They give absolutely no consideration to how people who live downtown are going to carry on with their lives when millions of olympic tourists are going to fill the city. I imagine it as a 2-week fireworks (since we had none of that this summer, we should pay for it in the winter, right?)
