Flins

Flins

(or Flinz), in Slavonic mythology, was a manly, bearded figure on a large flint stone (whence the name). The figure is very thin, so that it was held as a skeleton in some places, and thus made this the god of death among the Slavs. From several attributes of the accompanying figure it has been concluded that the black, burned staff indicates a torch, significant of the resurrection. The animal standing by was said to be a lion, because by his loud roaring he would raise the dead.
