Antero Vipunen

Baltic - A Finnish giant who lived below ground. This giant was said to have trees growing from his head, shoulders, chin and teeth. Vainamoinen consulted the giant when he forgot the magic words he needed to complete the building of his ship. The giant swallowed him but Vainamoinen forged an anvil and hammer and beat so fiercely on the giant's heart that he released him and told him the magic words. At times, called Antero Vipunen.
