Kalevala-seuran sivut KALEVALAN JUONI LYHYESTI

pin 1

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.

Pike in Finnish mythology. Väinämöinen slays a geat pike and makes his magical kantele from its jawbones.

Kalevala illustration by Martta Wendelin

Aino - Illustration by Russian artist Mechev MM || Now my mind is filled with sorrow / Wanders though the bog and stubble, / Wanders weary through the brambles, / Roams throughout the dismal forest, / Till my life is filled with darkness, / And my spirit white with anguish. ——Kalevala Rune 1V (Crawford translation)
