Also known as POLEWIK, POLEVOI

Field spirits.

The POLEVIK (Singular: Poleviki) are strange dwarf-like creatures with odd eyes and long green grassy hair. Their black and white suits are a dead giveaway.

They protect the fields from wandering strangers by playing nasty tricks on them. The POLEVIK also punish lazy field workers. Do not take a nap in a field of corn grass or you may wake up dead.

Handy hint: these managerial spirits are sticklers for punctuality and appear promptly at noon or dusk. So keep an eye on the time and make a sharp exit before they show up.

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