Bannik

31 Pin-lisäykset2 Seuraajat
Le bannik est l'esprit des bains dans la mythologie slave. Il élisait domicile dans la petite maisonnette adjacente à l'isba où les habitants venaient prendre leur bain. La pièce qui lui servait de domicile était dénuée d'images chrétiennes. Il était de bon ton de laisser un peu d'eau pour le bannik après son bain. Après trois séries de baigneurs il réservait la pièce pour lui-même et agressait quiconque venait le déranger. (wikipedia)

SaunaTonttu - (folklore) An elf said to inhabit the sauna and punish those who misbehave in it. (Maybe that's why Finns usually don't say a WORD. Heh.)

Bannik is the bathhouse spirit in Slavic mythology. Slavic bathhouses resemble saunas, with an inner steaming room and an outer changing room. A place where women gave birth and practiced divinations, the bathhouse was strongly endowed with vital forces. The third firing (or fourth, depending on tradition) was the offering to the Bannik, and no Christian images were allowed as it might offend the occupants. Bannik had the ability to predict the future.

BANNIK - in Slavic mythology, a spirit which inhabited a bathhouse and could tell the future. One consulted him by standing with his/her naked back exposed in the doorway of the bathhouse. If the future looked good, the bannik gently stroked the seeker's back; if it looked bad, he slashed at it.

lemmiwinx-gerbil-king:  I don’t know the source, sadly. Please, if you know the author, tell me!I think, it’s related to the creature from Russian folklore, called bannink. That’s kind of a hobgoblin or brownie, who inhabits banya,a steamy Russian bathhouse. Normally bannik simply takes care of the bathhouse, but if the people are disrespectful to him, this creature can be scary…
