The Fisher is a wooden sculpture carved mainly from materials found in nature. The sculpture describes a large fish catching bird, an osprey. The massive osprey will be on display outdoors at the Art Ii Biennial, making the sculpture fly in the open air. Hanna Kaisa Vainio has gathered materials for her sculpture from the lake and river sides and forests in Kainuu. Some pieces of the sculpture might also be gathered from the surroundings of the Ii River.
