The One That Leads You Astray Picture

This is for the Mythical Creatures Design Challenge! were we are supposed to make a T-shirt design based on mythology/folklore [link]

And with me being from the north, my mind just went straight for the Norse myths and tales.

LYKTEMANN (the lantern man)

A Lyktemann (also called vettelys or alvelys) are small lights, often flickering, observed in and around marshes. Previously it was thought that Lyktemannen was a supernatural creature that went out in the marsh to lead people astray.
Similar tales are found in many cultures. In England the phenomenon is known as Will o 'the wisp, in Germany Irrlicht, and in France as Feu Follet It also exists in Japan as the phenomenon Hitodama.
