Baba-Yaga is the oldest character of the Slavonic mythology. Originally Baba-Yaga was the goddess of death; people imagined her as a woman with the snake tail who guarded the entrance into the other world and accompanied the souls of dead people into the Kingdom of the Dead. Baba-Yaga is the most famous figure in Russian fairy-tales that represents evil. It is a character of such fairy-tales as "Marya Morevna", "Princess Frog", "The Tale of Life Water and Youth Giving Apples", and many, many others.
In this composition Baba-Yaga has gathered a full basket of poisonous mushrooms and flying in her mortal to her wooden hut, stayed on the chicken legs. In front of the hut we can see a maiden in Russian 18th century costume and two mystical maiden looking characters with wings. Over the hut we can see the three headed dragon.
