Ivan Bilibin’s illustrations to the tale of Vasilisa the Beautiful.  Top/bottom and left/right, Vasilisa with one of the skull lanterns from Baba Yaga’s fence, the Black rider (aka night), Vasilisa with the White rider (aka day) in the background, the Red rider (aka the sun), and Baba Yaga herself (who used to scare the everliving crap out of me as a child).
