Awesome: The Kalevala

  • Lemminkäinen, dead and cut to pieces, is brought back to life by his mother's incantations. He's even more handsome than before, the poem adds.
  • Väinämöinen, fishing the Giant Pike, and making a kantele (a Finnish musical instrument not unlike zither or dulcimer) out of its jawbone...
    • ...and then playing it, enchanting the whole biosphere.
