Baba Yaga


Collection of paintings of a witch called baba yaga

Baba Yaga is a figure in Russian folklore. She eats people and decorates her fence with their skulls but she is known to help people that serve her. 

Her hut stands on chicken legs, and must be commanded to turn around so that one may enter. 

Baba Yaga flew through the air in a mortar, rowing with a pestle, and her house could run after its victims.
