Tupilaks and Faxes

Part of Radio 4's Northern Lights festival. Greenland is the world's largest island, but only about

50,000 people live there, many still hunters with dog sleds. Yet it is also a modern place, with home rule, CDs and faxes. So, is there a role for art - such as the traditional Inuit

"tupilak" sculpture - when mere survival is difficult, despite the comforts of modern technology?

Paul Allen visits Greenland, and hunts for art which uses ancient traditions to speak for an emergent nation - and to the rest of the world.
