This second edition of our notebooks, designed entirely by hand by Cuadernos Misterio , is inspired by two Chilot myths found in the Glosario de los Brujos, by the author Don Heriberto Bahamondes Tejedas: La Voladora and La Condená.
One of La Voladora's tasks is to deliver the dire messages of the Brujos of Chiloé, taking the form of a heron, more precisely a bauda. To accomplish this transformation, she must vomit her entrails into a wooden container and quickly hide them afterwards. If she ever has the misfortune of losing them or having them stolen, she will maintain the appearance of a bauda for the rest of her life.
At dusk, several baudas emerge from the forests and gather on the shores of the sea to search for food. However, it is impossible to know if one of them is a Voladora who was unable to find her insides...
In the Glosario de los Brujos , the latter is described as a young witch who refused to follow the orders of her superiors and was therefore condemned to live, for eternity, in the body of a bauda. You can sometimes see her in the evening, by the sea, in the company of La Voladora.
