Inuit Map – Fascination

Already three hundred years ago they carved three-dimensional maps (see below) – made to be felt rather than seen on dark nights in the kayak. Made out of wood they were both weather proof and would float if accidentally dropped overboard. The actual landmass was often abstracted – it is the edges that contain important information about the shoreline.
