Volchina, the Death Spirit

untitled-design-66

Volchina, the Black Wolf, death personified, comes for everyone. Upon meeting it, men and women of Rodhina travel to the Blazhena Kray, a mythical land of the dead, where they are offered to stay and receive a reward or punishment they deserved while alive, or to return to Rodhina, a man born now as a woman, and a woman now born as a man.

Above is the symbolic depiction of the spirit with the letter ‘c’ standing for death in the language of Rodhina, in a knot representing the circle of life.

Below is an ink drawing of Volchina. Full image can be seen on DeviantArt (prints available).
