Water Goblin – Vodyanoy – водяно́й

Just stumbled across this amazing piece of work

Water goblins or spirits can be found all over the world but one of my favorite representations is from Eastern Europe, namely Vodyanoy. He is said to appear as an old man with a fish tale, covered in muck and algae, with eyes like red-hot coals. He lives at the bottom of lakes and rivers, ponds and marshes, and in the whirlpools of mills. Midnight is his favorite hour but beware of him at any time of day, especially if you are a young woman, as he’s always in search of a wife. Children are also at the top of his list; he will grab them by their legs and drown them given half the chance, dragging them down to his kingdom where he uses their souls as slaves.
