MUTI is a creative studio based in the city of Cape Town, South Africa.
“We created a series of characters that were inspired by legend and folklore from Russia, Japan and Ancient Persia. We illustrated Baba Yaga, a Tengu and the Manticore, referencing the traditional art styles of their respective regions.”

on mountain peaks so high
and if you should harm his forest home
you’ll see his arrows fly.

The manticore, that fearsome beast of teeth and spiny tail
was hunted by the sultan’s men, brave soldiers strong and tall.
Alas for them, their gallant hunt was sadly doomed to fail:
with horrid roars he pounced on them and ate them, bones and all.

Beware of Baba Yaga as she flies on through the sky,
these words of dire warning should never be forgot:
don’t look up, don’t make a sound as that old witch goes by
or she’ll snatch you up and steal you, and put you in her pot.
