In Slavic Mythology, the Leshy is a forest spirit who protects wild animals from hunters and other men who try to disturb the balance of nature. He has been described as a tall man with piercing green eyes, with long hair and pale skin. Here, he is leading a caravan of wild animals away from the forest, in order to protect them.

Beautiful. You have a great sense of enticing the viewer with the story behind the image. Even before reading the description, I was captivated!

Beautiful picture and - despite the Leshi’s stern expression - touched with sadness. It’s as if humans are making the wonder and diversity of nature disappear in the same way they’ve made all the magic disappear from the world in the recent past.
