Week two-forty-eight of Operation Graphite – theme: Krampus.

There is certainly a much more romantic spin to this particular Krampus, and I wonder if the striking, satyr like appearance is due to recently seeing images from the live action Beauty and the Beast trailer. Krampus is is usually depicted much more demonic and beastly in Germany, but the pan like satyr is also related to festivals of the Romans. With Saturnalia being one of the original European winter festivals, and Yule being the Germanic winter festival, a satyr and gift giving version of Odin  teaming up seems appropriate for modern winter celebrations. Just don’t piss them off.
