Sirkka Turkki’s Rose Castle
Sirkka Turkki’s little house and its surroundings in Porvoo’s Sillvik are a complete work of art. Wherever you look, you see the work of the artist’s hand. There is a large art park in the yard, the walls of the garage are lined with photos from world trips, paintings and small sculptures illustrating the yard building. The porch is populated by a large number of clay children bathing and reading, on the kitchen wall hangs the whole village’s little people from the puppet theater, and the living room is filled with the miniature town of Rose Castle. All works have exciting stories.
