Bow head whale – mural in Iqaluit

A very detailed mural, representing the indigenous people who live in the Canadian Arctic. If you look close enough you can spot all sorts of things, such as the Polar bear or the guys paddling in their kayaks and of course the huge Bow Head whale. It took Alexa Hatanaka, Patrick Thompson, and Jonathon Cruz 9 days to complet this huge mural on the outer wall of the hospital in Iqaluite, Nunavut, Canada. Images via nuschool,stilettosonthetundra
