Baba Yaga is a maternal, mother-nature figure and an evil villain who enjoys eating those who fail to complete her tasks. The most common portrayal of Baba Yaga is as either one old woman or a trio of old sisters, all of whom are depicted as skinny, with iron teeth, and noses so long that they touch the ceiling when they sleep.
Baba Yaga is commonly illustrated as riding around on a mortar rather than a broom, wielding a pestleas both a flying aid and a wand. Tales involving her usually take place at her hut. Never venture into a house that stands on chicken legs because you may just be dinner for the Slavic witch!
