Description
The title "Sielulintu” (soul bird) originates from ancient Finnish mythology in which birds play a prominent role. It was believed that the soul of an individual was brought by a bird at the time of birth and taken away by a bird at the time of death. Not all that long ago, people in Eastern Finland used to place bird figures carved out of wood at their bedside while sleeping to protect the soul and prevent it from becoming lost in their dreams.
