OVDA

Naked cannibal monster of Finnish forests

Donít go into the woods on your own. If you're a woman, and a naked man advances towards you with his feet pointing backwards, you have no chance. Itís him. You will be danced or tickled to death. And then eaten.

If you're a man, it will be a naked woman likewise. If you go as a pair it may confuse him, but we canít vouch for it.

There are no reported sightings of OVDA outside of Finland, but for maximum safety we suggest that if you are ever confronted by a naked person, you get a good look at their feet before engaging in any other activity.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ovda graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ovda movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Ovda statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ovda. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
