my inspiration for the painting i shared previously came from these beautiful rock sculptures seen by the lake…
someone had taken the time to carefully stack, balance and create these intriguing structures…
some of them had toppled over. or perhaps they were intentionally placed that way…
inukshuk (also written inuksuk; plural, inuksuit) are stone landmarks used by the inuit and other peoples of the arctic region of north america. they may originally have been built to signify food caches, or as navigational or hunting references.
when the rocks are stacked in the shape of a human, as above, they are called inunnguaq.
this monday is canadian thanksgiving. i’m always thankful for my family and our good health and happiness. but today, i’d like to add more.
i’m thankful for the beauty found in simple things. and for the chance to share them here.
happy thanksgiving and i hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
