Eskimo Street Art in the Arctic
Iqualuit is the capital of Nunavut, Canada and home to a diverse mix of people including many Native Inuits.
Here in the United States, we commonly refer to the Inuits as Eskimos.
Check out this awesome mural created by Jonathon Cruz on the Iqualuit's City Hall...I love it!!

"Qulliq Magic Brightest! section of Iqaluit's City Hall concrete wall mural by artist Jonathon Cruz, Nunavut, Canada. Qulliqs are the traditional seal oil-fired stone implement combination of stove, heater and lamp of the Inuit. The modern equivalent would be a generator-powered oven/range, furnace and lights. Simple, small and portable versus a room full of appliances, go figure." Photo by Mike Beauregard
