of Arctic Art


Overview | Art of Siberia | Art of Arctic America  | Peoples | Chukchi

we humans have been creating art for more than 30,000 years, and some of the earliest art of Palaeolithic Eurasia - including carvings of birds and paintings of animals - influenced the themes and types of carving, painting and rock art for thousands of years. The ancient art of northern Eurasia, Siberia and Arctic America provides insights on the cultures of the Chukchi, Eskimo and other maritime peoples of the North Pacific Rim.

For more information on these northern cultures, see resources on other ancient artifacts, harpoons and pottery of these regions.
