"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!"
