"In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a person's soul at its most vulnerable when dreaming. It was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep. Use this bird as a symbol of good luck, protection and happiness. To a happy soul!"

One of my favourite artists is Akseli Gallen-Kallela. He was a Finnish romantic period artist who used the recently published Kalevala as his inspiration.
