Oh Krampus... You devil you. I heart Krampus! Definitely lying to my children about him! You better not pout, you better not cry, you better not shout I'm telling you why... Krampus is gonna beat you down!
Nuribotoke / 塗仏 (an animated corpse with blackened flesh and dangling eyeballs) from the Hyakkai-Zukan, ca. 1737 by Sawaki Suushi. They are portrayed as similar in appearance to the Buddha but with largely bloated stomachs and occasionally having a catfish's tail. #japan #myth #youkai #world #gods
