Product Description

On this box talented Fedoskino artist Alexey Otryaskin has depicted Baba Yaga, that is his favorite fairy-tale character. Baba Yaga is the most famous figure in Russian fairy tales and is an archetype in literature that represents evil. However, in some stories Baba Yaga helps people overcome obstacles. Like in Marya Morevna, when she lent Tsar Ivan a horse that was able to outrun Koschei the Deathless' steed. She will forever be remembered in the lines of Pushkin's famous tale Ruslan and Ludmila when he writes:

On chicken feet a hut is set

With neither door not window showing...

See Baba Yaga's mortar glide

All by itself, with her astride
