Baba Yaga by ARTofANT Baba Yaga by ARTofANT
Another Chow entry. The Baba Yaga is an evil baby eating witch that lives in a chicken foot house. Don't mess with her or she'll steel your teeth for her stew or something or other.

Ah the infamous Russian witch. If I remember right she is consider neutral. Good and evil. I love this take on her.


She helps those that show kindness and are helpful to others. SHe has a real thing for punishing the selfish. As another before me. I really should go back and re-read my mythology. :)

Mossousrky was a classical composer who wrote a suite of music based on an art exhibition, which included the Hut on Fowl's Legs and the Old Witch, Baba Yaga. Emerson Lake and Palmer did a rock n roll version in the early 70's. It's extremely cool stuff!

Hm. Is'nt the Babayaga also a help for, well, heros? Or am I wrong here...? I should read my russian tales again... :giggle:

I don't think your necessarily wrong depending on the story or interpretation. In Hellboy I think she actually started off helping him but for her own gain. Typically though I don't think she's a helpful witch...

...And she eats babies...

Possibly, with whipped cream.

(Whipped in her pestle and mortar! Lol!)

I think she's more of a Cool Whip lady. The pestle and mortar are for transportation only.
