The Finnish pavilion at the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris. It was designed by the great Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. The painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela made the frescoes in the entrance hall (destroyed at the end of exposure and partly repainted in the 1920s in the lobby of the National Museum in Helsinki). The pavilion, designed in true Finnish art nouveau style, was a plea for Finland then under Russian rule. It raised awareness of the aspirations of the Finnish people to independence.
