Tuonen Tytti Picture

Well I was listening to PMMPs song Lautturi and in it is a part at the end of the song that I really like and I drew this based on that part... and that part goes like this:

"--Maan ja vetten alla tyttö soutaa
ja kuolleilla kielillä laulaa
maan ja vetten alla tyttö soutaa
se verkkainen ja tyyni virta on--"

In english:

"--Below the ground and the waters a girl rows
and sings in dead languages
below the ground and the waters the girl rows
it is a unhurried and calm stream--"

She is the person in The Kalevala who takes the dead to the Tuonela (the realm of the dead or the Underworld in Finnish mythology)
