Completed Witch #2 for the WITCH series - Lussi. .
➡️➡️Swipe for detail pictures➡️➡️
Lussi is a demon/witch from Scandinavian folklore. It is said that on December 13th, St.Lucy's Day, the old winter solstice, and the darkest night of the year -- Lussi, would fly through the town and snatch children who didn't help finish chores. If the home wasn't clean before the winter feast Lussi would fly down the chimney and snatch the children. The only way to ward her off was to stay up all night. Lussi is an earlier depiction of St. Lucy, a martyr who was said to wear a wreath of candles around her head to help he see in the night so that she could use both hands to bring food to the needy. I merged these two stories together for this artwork.
