Product Description

1 X 0.9 inch Sterling Silver earrings by Barry Burger. In contemporary times, the Inukshuk was thought of as a direction marker on the vast, featureless tundra of the Arctic. However, it was used traditionally by the Inuit to help in hunting Caribou. From a distance these landmarks resembled a human form, and were built of large stones and placed in lines on the top of hills on each side of a narrow valley.
