Baba Yaga

This is a cropped version of a print I made as a Christmas gift this year. It's based on a goofy Russian children's movie called Mop3ko (Morozko, I guess.). I focused on the most excellent Baba Yaga and threw in a few more items from the film and Russian folklore. The tree monster on the left side, for instance, was from the movie but, the glowing skulls (from Russian folklore) were not. Of course I had to include Baba Yaga's house on chicken legs.

The piece was initially inspired by a somewhat octagonal/rectangle mirror I had found at a Goodwill store. I had a piece of glass made for 10 bucks and the piece was complete. The finished product is below.
