Babice (Midwives) - Midwives are furious, and there’s no peace in fury. That is why they are revenging and venting their rage upon the most vulnerable, on those who are just the same as they used to be, exhausted by labor pain, by loosing blood and strength, on new mothers and the most unable, the weakest creatures in the world - upon babies. #Slavic, #Mythology, #Evil
Płanetnik- Slavic myth: storm spirits that used to be men that either died a certain death or committed suicide. They appeared as aged men wearing broad hats, guiding storm clouds by a lasso. They could either be harmful or beneficial. To get their favor you must throw flour into the wind.
RUSALKA - Female water Spirit. These souls of unbabtized babies or drowned maidens became beautiful pale girls with long flowing hair. They wear white or are sometimes naked, usually with poppies in their hair. They lived in the waters during the winter, but moved to the forests and fields during Rusal'naia week (hence the name) where they could often be seen perched in trees. #Mythology, #Slavic
