Rusalka (burtonized) Picture

What will we get if we combine Tim Burton's style and Slavic mythology ? I tried to answer on that question by this work.I love all Burton's films and tales about the creatures like Baba Yaga, Koschei ,Vodyanoy and of course rusałki which are known as a water nymphs,a females spirits in Slavic mythology.

Rusałka is the equivalent of a mermaid. She has different names in various cultures: rusalka (in East Slavic cultures), víla (Czech, Slovak), wiła (Polish).According to most traditions, rusalki were fish-women, who lived at the bottom of rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the bank and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, then lead them away to the river floor to their death.
