Arctic Glimpses

Arctic Glimpses

Bird, Toonoo Sharky, Cape Dorset Skier, Isacci Etidloie, Cape Dorset Sedna, Silas Qayaqjuaq, Hall Beach

Traditionally, Inuit dependence on animals - not only for food but for practically every aspect of Inuit technology - was virtually total. To survive, Inuit needed an intimate knowledge of all aspects of animal behavior, migration patterns, and anatomy. Thus it is not surprising that animals figure so prominently in Inuit art, and even less surprising that animals are portrayed with such love, respect, and attention to detail.

As modern members of a once-traditional hunting society Inuit have a close and complex relationship with animals. While the spiritual relationship between humans and animals may not be as intimate as it once was, it nonetheless finds a vehicle for expression in Inuit art.

Inuit have always believed that humans, animals, and the larger environment are inextricably bound together. Natural forces such as the weather and the movements of the animals were thought to be controlled by powerful deities and spirits. So the supernatural world is also a major theme in contemporary Inuit art despite the fact that most Inuit groups were converted to Christianity a centry or more ago.

Enjoy many intriguing glimpses into this fantastic arctic world by the following exhibition.
