The Ten Virgins by Tove Jansson

This is the only altarpiece by Tove Jansson (creator of The Moomins) in Teuva, Finland. It is one of my childhood memories and one of the first artworks I saw. Together with the bleeding crucified Christ next to the altar, it suggested something enigmatic beyond religion.
