VIY (Niy, Niam) a mythical creature whose eyelids drop down to the very ground, but if you raise them with a pitchfork, then nothing will be hidden from his eyes; the word "vii" means eyelashes. Viy - with one glance, he kills people and turns cities and villages to ashes; Fortunately, thick eyebrows and eyelids close to his eyes cover his murderous gaze, and only when it is necessary to destroy enemy armies or set fire to an enemy city, they raise his eyelids with a pitchfork. Viy was considered one of the main servants of Chernobog. He was supposed to be the judge of the dead. The Slavs could never come to terms with the fact that those who lived lawlessly, not according to their conscience, were not punished. The Slavs believed that the place of execution of the wicked was inside the earth. Wii is also associated with the seasonal death of nature during the winter. He was revered as a messenger of nightmares, visions and ghosts, especially for those with a bad conscience.
