Jussi Mäntynen - Tracks in the Forest
The sculptor Jussi Mäntynen was a forest enthusiast, whose best known public work is The Elk, unveiled in 1928 in Vyborg.
Jussi Mäntynen (1886–1978) was an avid nature lover and hunter who worked as the conservator and preparator for Helsinki’s Natural History Museum. The exhibition showcases his depictions of native Finnish wild life, its behaviour and anatomy. Ranging in style from realism to stylized synthetism, his sculptures feature a wide array of materials from patinated bronze and silver to various types of stone and gilded wood.
