Dancing and Drudgery by the Market Square 5.12.2014-1.2.2015

Linnan juhlat copyright Jussi JäppinenThe warm atmosphere of the Dancing and Drudgery by the Market Square exhibition is created by the skilful hands of doll makers. You are most welcome to come and admire the doll installations by the Doll Artists of Finland Society! Let play and imagination sweep you away to the bustle and flurry of the Helsinki Baltic Herring Fair, to the throng of prestigious guests at the Presidential Independence Day Reception and to a moment of peace and quiet with the most beautiful Christmas melodies.
