The Myth of Black Annis

For my self initiated project I was looking into the Myth of Black Annis.

A tale about a blue skinned hag, who haunted the Dane Hills in Leicestershire.  Black Annis would lurk in the branches of an old oak tree, poised ready to ambush lambs or children who played out after dark.  Failing this she would head for the town, to snatch sleeping children straight from their beds.  She would skin the children alive and eat their flesh.  The skins would then be used as decorations for her cave or sewn together to create clothes.
I created  a series of papercuts.
