Folktales Far & Wide: Baba Yaga

From the Folktales Far & Wide mural, on permanent display in the children’s department of the Martin Library in York, PA.

Baba Yaga is the subject of many Russian folk tales or fairy tales.  You can learn a bit more about her here or here or here.  She lives in a home that walks on chicken legs, wears a necklace of childrens’ finger bones, and has metal teeth.  The Baba Yaga was chosen for the folktales mural to represent a sort of ultimate witch.
