Strashnaya zvezda

Russian-speakers are able to recognize the meaning of this name - which transliteration means "scary star".

But what is the meaning of scary stars?

Stars are bright and surrounded by emptiness and darkness. Scary stars are artificial, fueled by nightmare and restless mind structures. They are buildings with crumbling stairs and seashells growing on sunken wood.

All woodworks by Ravengold house are strashnii zvezdi, scary stars, but this one is the first of them, biggest of them, and owns no other name, just Strashnaya zvezda.
