Art of the Inuit

Through their artwork, the Inuit tell stories of their past and their feelings.

When you look closely at the birds and animals in Inuit art, you will see that each one often has its own special character. The individual appearance of the creatures in Inuit art grows out of respect that Inuit gave to all living things.

Another source of inspiration were mythical stories. The stories, and the spirits they describe, continue to be inspiring sources for Inuit artists today.
