The Expulsion of Death. Moravia, 1887

The Expulsion of Death and the Welcoming of Spring are western Slavic folk traditions originating in the pre-Christian era. Their central element is a straw effigy dressed in women's clothing, called variations of names such as Morana (primarily in the east), Morena, Marzana, Mařena, Smrt, Smrtka or Smrtholka. The ritual usually occurs on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
