Spoon made by political prisoner, 1918

A wooden spoon, made in the Hennala prison camp in 1918. After the Civil war thousands of Finnish men and women were detained in prison camps,
while the country suffered from serious food shortage. Conditions were so
bad, that many prisoners died of hunger before they could be
judged. To suppress the thought of food many prisoners started to make small handicrafts. This spoon is made by Emmanuel Lammi
and is dedicated to his daughter Sanni.
