With its balance and versatility, this piece by Roger Oshutsiaq is rendered to be an exceptional example of the beloved Canadian Inukshuk.
The stark raw minimalism of the figure is offset by the warm apple green stone which is polished to a mirror shine. This tension of energies produces a beautiful clash between modern and traditional style.
Inukshuks are versatile and easy to incorporate into almost any design style. Oshutsiaq’s Inukshuk could be the “star” of your kitchen island or it could stand quietly in serene repose on your bedside table.
