KUTKH is a Raven spirit revered by various indigenous peoples of the Russian Far East.


I was looking for an appropriate myth and i decided to start with Siberia and it's indigenous people who i find fascinating. The story of the raven spirit Kutkh stuck with me and i wanted to illustrate it in my own style.

What is the mystical story behind your design?

Kutkh appears in many legends: as a key figure in creation, as a fertile ancestor of mankind, as a mighty shaman and as a trickster. He is a popular subject of the animist stories of the Chukchi people and plays a central role in the mythology of the Koryaks and Itelmens of Kamchatka. Many of the stories regarding Kutkh are similar to those of the Raven among the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, suggesting a long history of indirect cultural contact between Asian and North Amer
