KIKIMORA

Rather shabby kitchen spirit

She is a scrawny old lady who lives in your house and helps with the housework. She also looks after your chickens, even if you don't have any.

KIKIMORA tends to lurk behind your stove or in your pantry where she can keep a beady eye on your domestic activities. If you are a slovenly housekeeper, she will punish you by breaking crockery or hiding your favorite jar of pickles. What a horridly judgmental old biddy.

If you suspect your home is harboring a KIKIMORA, there is an easy way to detect her. Just poke around the kitchen until you find a dirty, straggly-haired woman with chicken legs.

She sometimes partners with DOMOVOI and can be a bit henpeckish if early illustrations are anything to go by.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Kikimora graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Kikimora 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 Kikimora statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Kikimora. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
