Here's a mural painting made for new primary school building in Onttola, Kontiolahti, North Karelia.
This is a very special case for me as I used to go to school there as a child.
The theme in the mural - the fireweeds and elephant hawk moths - are inspired by my childhood walks
to school and back when I tried to find as many elephant hawk moth caterpillars as possible.
Those travels are the reason for the huge caterpillar appearing in my book about the Kinkmoles,
so it was only natural to bring them in this mural also.
