Mobile Homes

A few days back we were in Northbridge, across the tracks from Perth CBD, and stopped to admire this amusing sculpture. It’s called “Baba Yaga Houses” and is by Marwa Fahmy. The strange houses refer to the Eastern European legend about the witch Baba Yaga, who lives in a house on chicken legs.

If you like classical music, one movement in Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” is about Baba Yaga.
