Slavic mythology.  Morana by Vasylina
Slavic mythology. Morana

  Morana was the Slavic goddess of winter and death.

 She usually appeared as an ugly old woman, but to those who showed no fear before her she appeared as a beautiful young girl.
  Morana was a long and cold winter, a winter that could bring death through famine and extreme cold, that could cause disease and massive death of the cattle. Her arrival was therefore always expected with fear and her departure was celebrated with a lot of noise and cheer.

Мара – богиня смерти, дочь Лады. Внешне Мара выглядит как высокая красивая девушка с черными волосами в красных одеждах. Мару нельзя назвать ни злой и ни доброй богиней. С одной стороны она дарует смерть, но в то же время она же дарует и жизнь.

Slavic mythology. Sirin by Vasylina
Slavic mythology. Sirin

Sirin is a mythological creature of Russian legends, with the head and chest of a beautiful woman and the body of a bird. According to myth, the Sirins lived "in Indian lands" near Eden or around the Euphrates River.

These half-women half-birds are directly based on the Greek myths and later folklore about sirens. They were usually portrayed wearing a crown or with a nimbus. Sirins sang beautiful songs to the saints, foretelling future joys. For mortals, however, the birds were dangerous. Men who heard them would forget everything on earth, follow them, and ultimately die. People would attempt to save themselves from Sirins by shooting cannons, ringing bells and making other loud noises to scare the bird off. Later (17-18th century), the image of Sirins changed and they started to symbolize world harmony (as they live near paradise). People in those times believed only really happy people could hear a Sirin, while only very few could see one because she is as fast and difficult to catch as human happiness. She symbolizes eternal joy and heavenly happiness.

Сирин, в славянской мифологии одна из райских птиц, даже самое ее название созвучно с названием рая: Ирий. Однако это мифическое создание отнюдь не светлые Алконост и Гамаюн.

Сирин - темная птица, темная сила, посланница властелина подземного мира. От головы до пояса Сирин - женщина несравненной красоты, от пояса же - птица.

Кто послушает ее голос, забывает обо всем на свете, но скоро обрекается на беды и несчастья, а то и умирает, причем нет сил, чтобы заставить его не слушать голос Сирин. А голос этот - истинное блаженство!

Slavic mythology. Mermaid. by Vasylina
Slavic mythology. Mermaid.
In Slavic mythology mermaids are the souls of people who were murdere. They have no tail, they use their legs to move, and often they are very beautiful.
В мифологии славян, русалки - это души людей, умерших не своей смертью.  У них нет хвоста, передвигаются они на ногах, часто имеют красивую внешность.

Wow. You got one of the best Myth theme gallery I have seen. I'm also into myths although I turned mine in to kaijus and not even near the quality of your art :)

I've learned a lot from your info on Sirin and now I'm prepared to make one kaiju based on her since she's one of the myth creatures on my line up from around the world :P
