Description: Hardcover, 136 pages
In the mythical world of Taru Mäntynen’s sculptures, the boundaries of humans and animals are blurred, wolves dance and a lynx stands as if waiting for something to happen. Mäntynen’s art is inspired both by the epic tales of The Kalevala and ancient cave paintings. Mäntynen casts her sculptures in her own workshop. This book about Mäntynen’s art has been published in conjunction with the comprehensive retrospective looking back on her long career. The book is in Finnish.
