Melissa of art = love = life created these charming softies, based on the Baba Yaga character from Russian folklore. In the stories, Baba Yaga is often portrayed as living in a house with chicken feet.
I made the first one for a friend who was having a bad day, but then I decided that I wanted to see a whole bunch of them together, like a little group of baby chicks flocking around – only instead of being cute like a group of yellow baby chicks, they’re more like a little nightmare flock
I was fascinated to read more about Baba Yaga, and love seeing Melissa’s take on the character and her crazy homes.
