‘Norden I’ – Myths

Once again the eight Nordic countries have made the decision to join forces in a stamp issue - this time a series of 6 stamps in all issued over a period of 6 years, featuring the topic "Norse Mythology", with one joint issue every other year. POST Greenland somewhat differs from the rest of the Nordic countries using their very own Inuit legends and myths. The stories are numerous and have been embodied by several experts as well as historical figures. When he returned from the Danish literary Greenland expedition 100 years ago, Knud Rasmussen was one of the few lucky ones at a very early time to experience the exciting stories first hand at some of the first meetings with the original Inuits. His impressions of the Inuit tales of spirits and beliefs can be read in many of his books.
