Lake Keitele

Akseli Gallen-Kallela, 1905

The apparent tranquility of this naturalistic landscape is disturbed by the currents crossing the water and the alarming impenetrability of the dense island. The ripples are supposed to have been made by the boat of Väinämöinen, the legendary bard of Finnish folklore. Finnish National Gallery / Central Art Archives / Hannu Aaltonen
