The Scoresby Sound was named after the British Arctic explorer William Scoresby who conducted detailed surveys of the Eastern coast of Greenland in 1822.
The stunning natural beauty of the Sound includes a network of fjords covering an area of some 38000 km2 with the longest fjord extending 350km inland from the coastline.
A further tribute to Scoresby is the eponymous lunar impact crater visible in the northern part of the moon and discretely featured in the corner of the painting.
