Many folk stories from around the world depict the quintessential and eternal battle between good and evil. In Baltic folklore, there is an reoccurring theme surrounding talismanic comb, a magic amulet to fight off the wicked.
In these legends, if the protagonist is chased by a witch, he drops a tiny comb pendant over his shoulder and a forest rises up in it's place. The vicious then become trapped forever amid the trees.
