Slavic mythology. Volkolak by Vasylina Slavic mythology. Volkolak by Vasylina

Volkolak  is the man who can turn into a wolf or bear. One can become a volkolak  willingly and against his will. Warlocks usually turn oneself into the Volkolak in order to gain the power of the beast.

worldmythology56.blogspot.ru/2…

Волколак – человек, способный превращаться в волка (медведя). Волколаком можно стать добровольно и против своей воли. Колдуны часто превращают себя в волколака, чтобы обрести силу зверя. Они способны превращаться в волка и обратно в человека по собственной воле. Для этого колдуну достаточно перекувыркнуться через пень, или 12 ножей, воткнутых в землю острием, при этом если за то время, пока маг был в обличии зверя, кто-то вынет хотя бы один нож из земли, то колдун уже не сможет вернуться обратно в человеческое обличие.

Отличить волколака от волка можно по задним конечностям, суставы у оборотня остаются человеческими и подобны коленям. В человеческой же форме волколака можно отличить по волосам на голове, которые напоминают волчью шерсть. Во время солнечного или лунного затмения волколаки не в силах сдерживать себя и часто впадают в неистовство против своей воли.

Awesome picture. In my country, we call it vlkodlak. And if you haven't guessed it's basically a werewolf.

Конкретно эту работу я делала в технике фотоарт, фото+дорисовка. Уроков я не пишу, но на форуме Демиарт есть школа фотоарта, там прекрасный учитель.

Нарисовано шикарно.


Мелкая деталь -- скорее всего подобная восьмилучевая свастика -- современный новодел. Типичной была 4- лучевая, до того как этот символ был измазан политикой, это был просто символ солнца(восходящего или заходящего) с четырьмя лучами. Встречается в вышивках, узорах рубашек, резных подоконниках и даже рублях временного правительства ...
с удивлением увидел на деревянной бабушкиной солонке.

С другой стороны всегда можно сослаться что это "загадочный магический знак, известный только магам"  :)
