Ahh fascinating stuff - thanks for the link. It does appear to have some great ones in there
there is the tale of a maiden who escapes a witch by transforming herself into a pond. The witch then lies on her stomach and drinks all the water, swallowing the young girl, who uses a knife to cut her way out of the witch.

That is particularly powerful imagery. It's amazing to me how much I didn't 'see' in Fairytales that I pick up on now.
