  • Little Otik
    For Black & Grey Magazine
  • “Little Otik” is based on Jan Svankmajer's
    film of the same name which is, in turn, based on
    the Czech folktale "Otesánek" by K J Erben.

    “Little Otik” is the story of a married couple who are
    unable to conceive. One day, the husband digs up a
    tree stump that resembles an infant and delivers it to
    his wife. She cares so deeply for it that “Otik” comes
    to life.

    The couple soon discover, however, that their child
    has a bottomless appetite. It devours all of the food
    in the house before moving on to the furniture and
    eventually, humans. In the end, the wife is forced to
    destroy the fruit of her own love to prevent further
    disaster.
