|“Domovoi” by Ivan Bilibin, 1934|
In our upcoming release from LooseId, we feature a creature called a domovoi. Small, generally male, domovoi are a boon to a good housekeeper and a plague to a bad one. In Russian, the word dom means house.
One of the best parts about writing is being able to incorporate our favorite elements in our stories. I love mythology and finding references to faeries, the fey, and other folklore. I adore Russian folklore, full of strange creatures like rusalkas, Baba Yaga and her house on chicken legs, and domovois.
