To mark Canada Day on June 26, 2013, Inukshuk making workshop was organised by Artscapes at the Consulate General of Canada. Inukshuk, the singular of inuksuit, means “in the likeness of a human” in the Inuit language. They are monuments made of unworked stones that are used by the Inuit for communication and survival.
A whole new dimension was added to the word Inukshuk as slabs of coloured ice were used. Efforts of the participating artists transformed the slabs of ice into pieces of art.
