The Protective Spirit of the Forest.

He's supposed to protect trees from pollution and deforestation by developers. Whatever he is and where he is, his face is blue, and his eyes and beard are green. He wears his clothes back-to-front and casts no shadow.

Despite all this, he has a wife and kids and they all go away in the winter. Have you met anyone like this on vacation? If so where was it?

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