Fox fire; A northern European folk term for the Aurora Borealis. In Finland we call them "revontulet", literally fox's fires. It's based on an old folk lore where the fox creates the northern lights with its tail.

A drawing I did in 2012, and it remains one of my most faved pictures on DA and FA. I really enjoyed painting this one and I've always wanted to try illustrate this folklore :)
