Phase sixteen of the Labyrinths. Can it be linked to the Swan of Tuonela? I admit I am tempted.
Which brings me to Lemminkainen. Many see a relationship with the myth of Balder, and say that both may have the same origin. But I also see a strong relationship with the story of Inanna in the Underworld. The theme of someone going into the Underworld, dying and being resurrected. Pure Shamanism.
