The Orivarsa statue
The Orivarsa statue stands with dignity in the center of Orivesi with four hooves. The statue dates from 1990 and was made by sculptor Aimo Tukiainen. The Orivarsa statue is traditionally stocked as part of Orivesi’s Christmas opening. This ceremony celebrates the upcoming Official Woolsock Run Finnish Championships. Orivarsa also knows what a great state of being is when he gets wool socks on his feet.
You can get to know the production of sculptor Aimo Tukiainen in more detail at Purnu Art Center. A high-quality summer exhibition of contemporary art is also on display in Purnu
