Odd Imagery

Slavic Mythology Fireplace (1898)

This fireplace chimney cover shows the legend of Mikula, a Slavic mythology Russian epic hero. Read more about him at Wikipedia, because I’m kind of confused on his story. Something about Mother Earth loving him so much she doesn’t let other people’s plows leave the earth. IDK, cool art though.
