Sanna Annukka Limited Edition Wooden Soul Birds

Sanna Annukka recently launched a new portfolio and online store. I love these solid brown oak Soul Birds which are now available for pre-orders in her shop. I’ll have to add these to my Christmas list!

On her website, Sanna shares this bit about the the Soul Bird which stems from Finnish mythology. “In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. The Sielulintu was thought to deliver the soul to newborn babies and also to transport the soul to the afterlife at the moment of death. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a persons soul at it’s most vulnerable; when dreaming, and it was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep.”

Ooh la la! Those are really lovely. Nice find!

I just came across those birds today. Wish I could to get one..

i noticed them too, they’re lovely.

Lovely, now we can sleep safe :-)

I LOVE Sanna’s work! She is so amazing and her designs are tight! Great prints and having them be tangible ain’t too shabby! Thanks for highlighting this. Any chance of a Sanna Annukka interview/ studio visit?
