Finns are a people of the forest. The oldest words in the Finnish language are words describing trees, fish, wildlife, forests, rivers and lakes. The surrounding nature has always been of paramount importance to the Finns and the animal mythology has served an apparent purpose.
This exhibition demonstrates how ancient Finns saw and experienced their surroundings. Myths armed animals with traits that impacted people’s lives. Of these myths arose customs involving everything from asking for good luck in fishing to protection from wild animals. These myths were passed on from one generation to the next as an oral tradition.
The exhibition texts are in Finnish.
The exhibition is open 1.10.2019–23.8.2020.
