If you’ve been to the Kohler household lately, you may have seen something looking like this photo hanging in our staircase. This, for those of you not familiar with Inuit cultures, is an Inukshuk. It happens to be the emblem of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.

Carly and I were in Whistler this past summer and took in some views similar to this one, but don’t remember seeing this guy while we were there.

Ilanaaq

The 2010 Olympics Inukshuk has been named Ilanaaq, which is the Inuktitut word for friend, in case you needed a refresher.

You may also see Ilanaaq on my head, since I have a Vancouver 2010 hat that Ben ,of BenCredible.com, is very jealous of.
