Finnish Cow Goddess

Milkmaid of the Forests

She’s the lovely flaxen-haired girl who helps Tapio and Mielikki. Her specialty seems to be milking and looking after cows.

By all accounts, Tellervo is a delightfully bubbly, comely, roly-poly kind of a lass. In other words she’s just like all the other milkmaids you’ve ever met.
