 “In the Kalevala, a great oak tree connects the earth, the heaven and the underworld. A big oak grows in the world as early as the world is still being edited and created. The oak covers the moon and the sun, and the world becomes dark. There is a search for a woodcutter, but nobody seems to succeed. Finally, from the sea becomes a small copper-colored dressed man who becomes a giant and hits the tree with three strokes of axe. The lights of heaven are finally released, and the world is ready. The magic powers of the tree are released for human joy. The treetop cutter gets the lifelong magic touch, the cutter of the branch gets happiness forever and the sprig cutter gets the eternal love.”
