Inukshuk - 2010 Olympics

The symbolic Inukshuk is showing up everwhere since the 2010 Olympics have used it on their logo. An Inuit word with several meanings, the most common meaning (that I can find) meaning Welcome....You are on the right path. The people were here before you. These were extremely important landmarks to the Inuit.
I have chosen to put my Inukshuk standing as a lone sentry in front of a firey sunrise. A new day.
