Jeff Nishinaka’s paper dragons. I often feel that Chinese "dragons" are overrepresented -- that the long does not get mentioned in Chinese folk religion and lore anywhere near as often as it does in western projections of Chinese lore -- but this papercraft image is just so damn cool.
In Finnish folklore, Ajatar (also known as Ajattara or Ajattaro) is an evil female spirit of the forest, “the devil of the woods”. She has many forms and depending on the description, she’s said to be a witch, a ghost, a snake or a dragon. Ajatar spreads diseases and plague and anyone who looks at her becomes sick. It was believed that Ajatar was the reason why people got lost in the woods and her name is probably derived from the Finnish word ajattaa; ‘to lead’, ‘to pursue’.
