    In this gallery visitors can be delighted with Palmu’s long carrier paintings, different thematic. The painting message is mainly related to Finn-Hungarian popular traditions; also the pictures vary from landscapes, women figures, to Old Testament representations. Landscapes have remained a worthwhile theme throughout his career. His paintings describe the power of nature in its seasonal colors, shapes and patterns. Pamu's basic images are simple; Finnish vernacular buildings, the quality of the northern light, ancient symbols, the landscape itself and its inhabitants. His paintings communicate the feeling of environments that have been lived in and the land that has been worked.
