Lauri Porra – Stasis

Metsänpeitto (lit. forest cover)

A Phenomenon found in Finnish Folklore, used to describe people or domestic animals who went missing in nature for unexplained reasons. People "covered by forest" were described as not being able to recognize the terrain around them, even if they were on familiar grounds. People under the influence of the phenomenon became completely invisible to other people. Some managed to free themselves from Metsänpeitto by their own means, some where released seemingly without a reason. Some were never seen again.
