Forest Dance by fairychamber
Forest Dance
Tellervo and her animal family having a forest dance.

My entry for the :iconmagicalwoods: "the spirit of nature" - contest.

I was inspired by Finnish folklore. Dancing girl in the middle is nature spirit Tellervo. She is daughter of the forest god Tapio and nature goddess Mielikki.
Tellervo is known for her special connection with wild animals and her free spirit, like wind in the trees.
 She is also called as the "child/daughter of Tapiola". Tapiola is old Finnish word for forest so she truly is
 "child of the forest".
