Finnish Mythology

TAPIO

Finnish Nature God

Finnish Forest God

Being in Finland he is probably evergreen rather than deciduous.

With a beard of lichen and eyebrows of moss, you’ll appreciate that he is made entirely of trees. Consequently he doesn’t get around very much. But he doesn’t need to as he can branch out far and wide and let knowledge whisper through his foliage.

The family tree includes his wife MIELIKKI, his son NYYRIKKI, and his daughter TUULIKKI. Not to mention TELLERVO the maid.
