Baba Yaga. by Himmapaan Baba Yaga. by Himmapaan
'She threw her comb – and there grew up a deep and terrifying forest'

Illustration for Baba Yaga, from Myths and Legends of Russia, collected by Aleksandr Afanas'ev and translated by Norbert Guterman; published by The Folio Society: [link]

This is just one of a myriad of tales in Slavic folklore to feature the marvelous Baba Yaga, by turns wicked and benign. This one happens to be one of my favourites of these tales. (Can you spot the comb?)

Absolutely fantastic! The composition as a whole flows very nicely, and I can't stop looking at that breezy, flowing grass! What lovely details to it all! The leaves and vines are marvelous.
