About the artwork

The fish are BIG in Finland. Yes, Finland is the best – in every possible sense!!!

Don’t believe us? Well, then you really should read this short extract from a travel brochure from the late 1920s:

”No other country in the world can provide such opportunitiesfor boating, fishing, bathing and camping. Finland has over thirty-five thousand lakes, and the number of islands is uncountable.

Look at the map. It looks almost as though someone had split the inkbottle over it, leaving scarcely a corner untouched.

The rivers, lakes and rapids abound with fish. The scenery has a charm all its own, which is not to be found in any other part of the world.

And the light summer nights … these have to be experienced … one cannot describe them … but they are probably the most wonderful of all Finland’s attractions.”
