Will o' the Wisp Troll Head

Have you ever seen a faint flickering ghostly light over the marshes and swampland? Those who approach the light notice consistently that it appears to move away from them, but if they turn around and walk away, it appears to follow them .This light is "troll fire" held in the hand of a small troll-like creature that mischievously leads lone travellers off the beaten path at night.
The talented Alice Tochylovska returns to our pages with this incredibly detailed head from a Will o' the Wisp Troll. The piece has a very Froud-ian feel, and I mean that as the highest sort of praise. He's one of the very few artists that gets the mix of whimsy and menace the fae embody.
