Nikatjef B4.H3 
1994 Calendar
In Carpathian mythology, a tribe of insects known as the Lakin was responsible for order and organisation in the world while a band of menacing goblins known as the Hestas was constantly working to create disorder and destructiveness. The evil Hestas would prey upon the eggs of the Lakin in an effort to eliminate them because, once the eggs hatched, the insects were too powerful a match for the Hestas. A sprite-like creature called Nikatjef was named guardian of the eggs in this battle for balance and harmony. 
This would have been for the 1994 calendar. 
Painted 1993.
