A display of Inukshuks on the shores of Red Bay along the Labrador Coastal Drive in Southern Labrador, Canada.

Along the coastline of Red Bay, a display of Inukshuks creates interesting scenery for people visiting this unique place while in Southern Labrador.

Looking at these Inukshuks, you can see the resemblance of a human in the large rock formation which is exactly what it is supposed to appear as. Inukshuks vary in size and shape as you can see in this picture and at one time it was a symbol that was extremely important to the Inuit culture.

Today, people from all cultures build Inukshuks, many of them being in the formation of a human figure but they are non-existent to the true Inuit tradition.

Each rock that was used in the making of these Inukshuks, are very flat which is what is required so that they can easily be stacked on top of each other. The rounded rocks are placed on top so that they appear as a head of a human.

Red Bay situated along the Labrador Coastal Drive in Souther Labrador, Canada is a quaint village that is full of history as well as traditional creativeness like these Inukshuks. While visiting, try building your own Inukshuk and see how difficult they actually can be, especially if the rocks are not the ideal shape.
