By Julie Edel Hardenberg, graphic artist and author

“The stamps are inspired by the Greenlandic Christmas hymn ‘Guuterput’, which was written by my great-great-grandfather Rasmus Berthelsen and in which he describes how a legion of angels descends on Christmas Eve. The second stamp is inspired by memories from my childhood, when my grandfather would give us candles to light in a recess outside on the snow, so that we could spread the Christmas spirit outside the home.”
