These are mountain spirits from the myths of Poland. They can be very helpful towards miners by leading them to treasure or showing them the way to the surface of the earth from deep caves. They are also the guardians of jewels and gems of the mountains. If they are insulted or harmed they become malevolent and can cause tunnels to fall on people. Whistling, throwing rocks and covering ones head is considered bad luck whilst journeying into the underpasses of the mountains.
