Burning the Holy Moose

This project was carried out by students in environmental art at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. After reading texts on the old mythology about the moose and the importance of fire and offerings they created a common story of offering a wooden moose to the gods. A 7 meter tall wooden moose was built in the Finnish wilderness and offered to the gods, as part of a costumed drama act. Local people collaborated and attended the final event.

Thanks Bruce!
