Historical Background

In Eastern Slavic folklore, the Polevik (also spelled Polewik, Polevoi), was a field spirit. It appeared as dwarf with grass in the place of hair and 2 eyes, each of a different color. He appears at noon or sunset, wearing all white or all black. He would lead anyone wandering in the fields astray or, if they fell asleep in the field, give them diseases. To appease the Polevik, an old rooster, a toad, and 2 eggs, and in some accounts, a crow also must be placed in a ditch in that field.
