"The Marimekko pattern known as Metsänväki ("Forest Dwellers") has been used as part of the decor for Finnair long-range flights. The daily Helsingin Sanomat reports that the print was copied from a painting by a Ukrainian folk artist." -- sheise...
"According to Helsingin Sanomat Primachenko, who died in 1997, created the painting titled "Rat on a Journey" in 1963, while the design created by Isola dates back only to 2007. The animal figure in the original painting was not reproduced in Isola’s design, but otherwise it is difficult to tell the difference between the two." -- but... she knew original artist had passed away... :(((
