Arctic Region of Inuit Art

Whenever I look at a map of the Canadian Arctic, I'm always in awe of its vastness. I'm even more in awe of how far and isolated all those Inuit communities are. I've been to Iqaluit twice to acquire Inuit art but when I look at the maps, I see the other smaller communities even more isolated and farther up north than Iqaluit. It's very hard to imagine living way up there so far from everything else. But then there is that strange natural beauty of the Arctic barrens I have experienced a bit. See Arctic Region of Inuit Art to see maps of Inuit art producing communities. One will see just how far Inuit art must travel to get to galleries and homes down south.
