The fifth element is here! Earth, water, fire, air, and the mythical aether. In the ancient and medieval times aether was the translucent material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. The theory has been proven wrong and in modern physics evidence for the presence of such a medium has not been found. This means there is no proof for the existence – or non-existence – of the luminiferous aether. So maybe this is it?
This Eetteri Myssy hat carries four pompoms. In Greek mythology aether was thought to be the pure essence that the gods breathed, filling the space they lived in, analogous to the air breathed by mortals. There must be something ethereal in this, right?
The magnificent Olympic skier, girl from the neighbor village, Johanna Matintalo modeled the Myssy for us. Her element is snow.
