Uldus Bakhtiozina’s Interpretations of Russian Fairy Tales  01.31.15 | Eyegasm

Photo-based artist Uldus Bakhtiozina creates unique vision of Russian fairy tales.

"The name 'Merlin' derives from the Welsh Myrddin, the name of the bard Myrddin Wyllt, one of the chief sources for the later legendary figure. Geoffrey of Monmouth Latinised the name to Merlinus in his works."

Merlin (pictured in the beautiful drawing by Alan Lee above) is a figure intimately connected with forests in Arthurian lore. After the disastrous Battle of Arderydd, Merlin goes mad and spends years as a wild man in the woods, living.
