Tarvas sijaitsee Luontokeskus Haltian 'Alisessa maailmassa'. Tarvas-sanan merkitys on nykyisin hämärtynyt, mutta sillä on alunperin ilmeisesti tarkoitettu sarvekasta eläintä (hirvi, kauris, härkä). Useissa kansanrunoissa tarvas esiintyy hirvieläimen kertosanana. Hirvi on hyvin tyypillinen aihe myös vanhoissa kalliomaalauksissa ja sillä on varmasti ollut muinaissuomalaisille myös myyttistä merkitystä. Runossa ”Hiiden hirven hiihdäntä” hirvi esiintyy reaalimaailman ulkopuolisena, myyttisenä olentona.

Haltia jakautuu kerrostuneen maailmankuvan mukaisesti kolmeen osaan: yliseen, keskiseen ja aliseen maailmaan. Kerrostunut maailmankuva-ajattelu liittyy erityisesti pohjoisten kansojen vanhoihin uskomuksiin ja on selkeitä todisteita, että tällainen ajattelumalli on ollut osa myös suomalaista kansanuskoa.
