Finland Doll Sápmi Lapland Sami People
Wooden doll with movable arms, made by the Finnish designer Kaj Frank, well known for his art glass but he also made wooden dolls and toys. This doll could date from around 1945. Unfortunately one braid is broken off and missing. It represents the Sami people living in the Sápmi region (Lapland). This region stretches over 4 countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland & Russia.
Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
