The Athenaeum - The Wizard Väinämöinen (Akseli Gallen-Kallela - )

Aino is a figure in the Kalevala. It relates that she was the beautiful sister of Joukahainen.  Aino's brother, having lost a singing contest to Väinämöinen, promised Aino's "hands and feet" in marriage if Väinämöinen would save him from drowning in the swamp. Aino did not want to marry such an old man.  Rather than submit to this fate, Aino drowned herself. However, she returned to taunt the grieving Väinämöinen as a salmon.
