"In Northern Europe, the plague was personified as an old, bent woman covered and hooded in black, carrying a broom and a rake. Norwegians told that if she used the rake, some of the population involved might survive, escaping through the teeth of the rake. On the other hand, if she used the broom, then the entire population in the area were doomed, The Plague-hag; or Pesta."
This was a shorter sculpt of an idea i've been sitting on for a good while, having read this excerpt for preparations of a plague session in my game. While i usually take my time with a model, this was done in a single night.
