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 to find out more about him. Or ask, if you can't be bothered to read.
