Huldra

A painting of the norwegian folklore creature "huldra" for my folklore project.

Huldra is known as a seductress, or a succubus of you will, and she makes men fall in love with her by turning into an immaculate beauty. However, if you see her from behind, she has a cows tail and a hollowed out back. The idea for my illustration is that she is chanced upon in the forest, and for a second you can see some of her true beastly nature before she turns into her "normal" human.
