Greenland - Contemporary Art VI

This is the first time I've seen a souvenir sheet issued in this series, although I don't follow the series that closely. It 's very different from previous contemporary art stamps issued in Greenland. But this isn't just a map. And it isn't a map of Greenland.

This is a map of Denmark, covered in glaciers and given Greenlandic place names. The idea came to the artists after seeing a map of Greenland in an in-flight airline magazine, with all the glaciers given Danish names.
