SLAVIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Eastern Europe and Russia...

OVINNIK

Slavic Bad Spirit

Bad barking barn demon

He seems to bear some kind of incomprehensible grudge against threshing barns. He is always setting them on fire. What a horrible trick to play on a hard-working farmer.

If you see a black cat-like figure with glowing eyes which barks like a dog, keep away from the barn. Unless you’ve come to fill up his bowl. A decent offering of pancakes will keep him at bay.
