The artist behind the images is Naja Rosing-Asvid, who among other things created the series ”Greenlandic architecture”. The legendary Martin Mörck is the man behind the engraving of all ten stamps. Naja says the following about this fourth stamp in the series:
The cryolite mine in Ivigtût played a very important part in Greenland’s economy during the war, and it has therefore been chosen to be one of the ten images in the series, which reflects the war from the perspective of the Greenlandic people."
