“Adulterers, philanderers, roisterers, scrappers. On the whole Belarusian land there were no one like them. The Poles call these ones “zavalidroga”, and the Krivichs – adarvirog (tearhorn), because people say that they once violently torn off a horn from a Lucifer himself and made a drinking mug from it. You pour water in it and by the power of the horn vodka appears there…” Uladzimir Karatkevich, The Boat of Deaspair, 1959
