Baba Yaga and her Chicken-Legged Hut

Captainsmog presents a wonderfully illustrated scene, telling the story of Baba Yaga and her chicken-legged hut. There are many versions of the fairy tale, and like any good story, the details are where the weirdness begins. Is there one Baba Yaga? Three? Why do all of these stories involve cannibalism?

I invite you to look long and hard at this wonderfully constructed witch’s hut and check out the wonderful details.

Baba Yaga and her house roam the countryside once again!

David Hensel has created an incredible version of Baba Yaga and her walking house. The figure actually startled me last night. I refreshed my screen and she popped up in my face! Not what I was expecting at all. Anyway, I love her and her house. The house would be a great build on its own but being suspended on the spindly chicken legs is even better. A great figure and a great build!
