Illustration Friday: "Hollow" – うろ – "Uro"

Skogsrået is a charater from the Swedish folklore, and also known by different names and attributes across Scandinavia. She dwelles in the woods and looks like a perfectly normal, beautiful woman from the front, but she’ll never turn her back on you, because then you’ll see that her back is hollow, like an old tree. If she likes you, she’ll bestow your hunt or cattle-herding with good luck. If she really likes you – and you’re of the male persuasion – she’ll seduce you and have you come back time and time again until she has completely drained you.
