About the product
1968 Royal Copenhagen Christmas plate, designed by Kaj Lange, has as its motif The last umiak in Greenland (uminak = boat rowed by women) Royal Copenhagens Christmas plate from 1968 is the third of the plates with a motif from Greenland.See the plates from 1939 and from 1957. This plate depicts a Greenland sledge dog looking over the sea, where a Greenlandic umiak is sliding through the water. The umiak is an old Greenlandic type of boat, with a wooden framework covered by animal skin. This type of boat was used when people moved into the fiords in summer, where the possibilities of catching fish and seals were good.The women rowed the boat, and the owner sat at the rudder. At night, during the long travel, the boat was turned upside down, and people slept under them. The sledge dog is still used in Greenland to pull their sledges, as other means of transportation are difficult to use because of the ice and snow.
