First I have to tell that I'm deeply in love with Klaus Haapaniemi. Why? Soon you'll understand...

At the same time Haapaniemi mixes Finnish nature in his designs: you can see very typical Finnish elements with a vibe of Haapaniemi's style, like in the picture of pike on left side. Pike is very usual fish to be caught from our lakes. Other used animals are deers, owls, bunnies... Very typical animals from Finlands nature. Trees, such as birches, are used too. And Finland is known for it's birches, because we invented teeth friendly xylitol which comes from birch!
Also Haapaniemi has meaning in Finnish: it means aspen headland. We have lot's of aspens in Finland too. So I think in some of the pictures the leafs are aspen leafs. Nomen est omen.
Klaus Haapaniemi - he is a genius!
