Sauna Animals – A world born from the smells of forest, sauna rituals and animal spirits: Stories inspired by nature and Finnish folk tales.
“Saunaeläimet” was born out of Finnish mythology and forest – first as separate ideas: we explored sauna rituals and on the other hand animal mythology in the Finnish heritage. Combining the sauna and the forest animals happened naturally – the steam, the spirit of the sauna took the shape of an animal.
Sauna Animals stories are written by Reetta – a human animal inspired by myths and the ancient connection between nature and man. In their dreams the magnificent deer run tall and free.
The shape of the animals has been found by Riikka – an illustrator of forest and steam spirits. In their dreams the bears are playful and only a little scary.
We hope you find your own power animal, your sauna animal!
