Comment or your spleen will be next ingredient! ;)

Baba Yaga is a witchlike character in Slavic folklore. She is also a symbol of Świętokrzyskie Mountains, where I come from. Our Baba Yaga wears black and red striped folk cloth (so called 'zapaska świętokrzyska') and flies on a magic broom. According to legends every year witches celebrated Sabbath on the top of Bald Mountain (Łysa Góra), where was a temple of an old pagan cult.

"The Weird Sisters hand in hand
Posters of the Sea and Land
Thus do go about, about
Thrice to Thine and Thrice to Mine
And Thrice again to make up nine
Peace the charm's wound up!"
-MacBeth

What I remember from what was gonna be part of my lines for something for school. I WAS GONNA BE ALL THREE WITCHES! :D But the evil teacher changed my play D': But, yeah.

Wonderful art! <3 You made me think of MacBeth! XD

Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes!
:giggle: This just reminds me of that part of MacBeth!:giggle:

Lolz, superb absolutely awsome :nod: the only little bit disturbing things may be (according to me, but I am the last person to be taken seriously) the witches faces which don't look that much evil and hideous to me;-) otherwise it is splendid =D

Thank you for comment. There are two version of Baba Yaga: the first one is evil, eating children and making a deal with devils, but the second is a wise old woman helping lost souls, which I prefer. In my region in the Middle Ages all witches were abominations, but now they are like folkloric mascots and everyone loves them ;)
