Cerny Inuit Collection

The works at the museum give an impression of the culture and life of the peoples in the Polar regions,  demonstrating astonishing similarities with our regions.  Themes of the collection include animals, people, family, hunting, metamorphoses, compositions and schamanism and objects of daily life. Materials used for the sculptures and wallhangings are natural products from the area, such as stone, antler, whalebone, musk ox horn, sealskin, mammoth and walrus tusk. Lithographs were originally stone cut prints, but today one sees a wide variety of techniques being employed. Digital media and performance belong to the diverse range of expression.
