("Women of Ruokolahti on the Church Hill"), a painting by Albert Edelfelt (1854-1905), depicts some of Finnish folk costumes in delightful detail.

This painting is also very essential to Finnish collective memory. Amazing Albert Edelfelt, Women Outside the Church at Ruokolahti / Ruokolahden Eukkoja Kirkonmäellä Finnish artist
