The Slavic legend says that Babayaga lived deep in the forest in a hut that sometimes is described as standing on chicken legs. This lovely illustration skips the scary part of the old tale and goes straight to the joy of imagination. The paper collage ads dimension and texture to the already colorful and cheerful composition. Perfectly adorable for a kid's room.
