Baba Yaga, flying in the face of witchly tradition, generally travels sitting in a mortar and steering with a pestle rather than riding on a broomstick. As is mentioned in the short synopsis, she generally is depicted as living in a house on dancing chicken legs and surrounded by a fence made of human bones with a skull on each post. The skulls are said to glow with an eerie glow during the night. In folktales of Baba Yaga, she is often used as a cautionary tale for misbehaving children, in these tales; she takes naughty children away to be enslaved and later eaten.
