Kikimora, stained glass and textile collage on birch wood, 19.5" x 13", framed
Kikimora is a household spirit from Slavic mythology. She comes from the forest to live in certain houses, usually behind the stove or in the cellar. When the house is running smoothly, she's happy to tend the chickens and do housework. When things are in disarray, she breaks dishes, whistles and keeps everyone up at night!
Kikimora's face and shoulders are cut from stained glass and grouted. Her head-wrap is a textile collage; the background is also fabric.
