Fan Art: Finland used to talk



He was quite curious a fellow, actually, I suppose. And, as it's the birthday of Elias Lönnrot, the collector of traditional Finnish oral poetry, may I present the guy with the beard - Väinämöinen.

Väinämöinen is "the central character in the Finnish folklore and the main character in the national epic Kalevala. -- Originally a Finnish god, he was described as an old and wise man, and he possessed a potent, magical voice." Check out this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V%C3%A4in%C3%A4m%C3%B6inen to find out more about him. Or ask, if you can't be bothered to read.

@Aurinkolasit I'd like to meet him as well... That was the story about Kalevala and the sampo. What do you thought of it?

In 1982 they discovered the remainings of Eurovision fans in a swamp.
