Diverging from the traditional picturesque illustrations of winter, the Joot Forgotten Language of the Cold series portrays a more sincere depiction.

In her images, Finnish artist Joot explains that she wants to show "the lost connection with nature" and our true selves that we once had. She incorporates images or animals such as bears and moose, but also spirit creatures such as dragons that emanate from a person's soul. She gives her characters various masks that represent how we often try to hide our true identity and purpose behind a false image.

The simple lines and dark colors of the Joot Forgotten Language of the Cold series imbues the images a gracefully resonant truth.
