Kalevala Koru: Hämäläinen Juhlakääty

Hämäläinen Juhlakääty necklace by Kalevala Koru.

Finland’s resistance to Russification took many forms. It can even be seen in postal history.  This postcard depicts a Finnish woman with a lion on her breast and Lex, the Finnish law at her side. It also illustrates with subtle symbolism the rising sun, a clear reference to Japan, who defeated the Russians in the Japanese/Russian war in 1904-05.
