Based on a stonecut print by Pudlo Pudlat Designed by Reinhard Derreth
Pudlo Pudlat, "Aeroplane", 1976 National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario
While a leisurely stroll (or more likely a drive) to the corner store will get southern Canadians all the food they need, the Inuit had to hunt and fish for their food. The need for mobility thus produced the kayak, the umiak, and the dogsled. Innovations such as the snowmobile and the airplane, however, are now pushing the old methods of travel aside. The Inuit travel stamps feature different methods of travel in the north as depicted by Inuit artists. The influence of modern technology on travel in the north is seen in a stonecut and stencil print of a airplane, by Pudlo. The stamp was designed by Reinhard Derreth of Vancouver.
