Baba Jaga the witch

Baba Jaga is a character from Slavic mythology. She is a witch and Great Goddess (Great Mother), connected with the rites of passage. Today she still appears as an old witch in Polish folclore and fairy tales. One of my favourite motifs.

Breaking the traditional image of Baba Jaga, I decided to make 3 pairs of breasts to her, to emphasis her connection with world of animals. It symbolizes feeding and protection, too. Three is also a number of Goddess.
