After seeing a documentary about Scandinavia I became heavily inspired. It has always been a dream of mine to see the northern lights and I seriously want to learn more about the Sami culture. They are so inspiring. Their way of thinking and especially their clothes. These pictures are made by Laila Duran, she has a website with lots of Northern Folklore inspiration. When you read this, you should want to know more too.
'' The Sami possess a rich cultural heritage and are known for their close connection to the land they live on. Their ancient religion consisted of strong beliefs in the spirit world and the power of nature around them. They believed that everything is connected to the earth, and that the earth is everything. Mountains and fells, as well as bodies of water, were worshipped and sacrificed to. The Sami also believe that everything organic has a soul, and they treat everything and everyone accordingly.''
