Stella Kruusamägi: Traces of Itla

How to become a creature?

Itla is according to Estonian-Belarussian mythology a, drooling, bubble-spitting creature. Itla’s pronounce is IT. It usually arrives through the ritual. The person who knows how to do the ritual will allow Itla to gain power over her/him to become a mysterious creature. When appearing in the right environment Itla can show all its psychological sides.

It was believed that Itla is a mirror to our society, a mirror for the one who performs the ritual and also for the ones who are witnessing it. When Itla’s time runs out, it disappears and leaves all the traces behind.
