Leena Iso-Ahola has dedicated her series of Revontulet/Aurora Borealis to both of her grandmothers Hilma Auroora Heikkila, who was born in Lapland and to
Aune Emilia Koskela, who loved and respected nature. The Aurora Borealis had a spectacularly unusual showing in Haapavesi,Finland on the day of her burial.
