What's the link between this picture and the scene it depicts and Tolkien's works? --Earendilyon 11:29, 25 June 2007 (EDT)

Well, there's an article of Kalevala here, and couldn't there be a picture in there? --Elemmakil 11:37, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
Yes, of course. I even would like that very much! However, I would like to see a picture of not just any one scene from the Kalevala, but of a scene on which Tolkien based a story or character of his, or part thereof. --Earendilyon 11:43, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
Sure! I'll just try to find another picture. And I already got permission from Gallen-Kallela's descendants - he's propably the most famous Finnish artist, and his paintings are mostly scenes from Kalevala. --Elemmakil 11:47, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
