Vasilisa the Beautiful and Baba Yaga: 

By his first wife, a merchant had a single daughter, who was known as Vasilisa the Beautiful. When the girl was eight years old, her mother died. On her deathbed, she gave Vasilisa a tiny wooden doll with instructions to give it a little to eat and a little to drink if she were in need, and then it would help her.

Baba Yaga is a supernatural being who appears as a deformed and/or ferocious-looking woman. Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle, and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs (or sometimes a single chicken leg).


 FAIRY TALES RE-IMAGINED: Vasilisa the Beautiful in a post-apocalyptic world 

Vasilisa with her face smeared with dirt and blood and her hair messy, but still every inch as beautiful as she ever was in the tales of old. She wandered the earth alone before she was taken in by a camp who forced her to find supplies and technology for them. She had no choice but to accept this mission, and venture into the world, passing through white nuclear wasteland, red burning cities and a black forest so dark and thick, you cannot see the sky.
