Alpine Goddess of Southern Germany. Basically a female version of Krampus with her own holiday were fish and greul were eaten. If the children are good, she left a silver coin under their pillow, but if they were bad or if they ate anything during her holiday feast other then fish or greul she would cut their bellies open, take out the guts and intestines and stuff them with straw and pebbles.

This made me curious enough to look up Perchta and now I know what that blade she's holding is for ^^'

And this is absolutely amazing! All of your art is astounding, but my favorites are definitely anything that you draw with beastly creatures and pretty girls :aww:

Krampus, the Anti-Santa. Glad somebody remembers him. But who is the other lady?

Wonderful staging, by the way. ^^

In Germany he is still kinda well-known as Saint Nicholas' servant, though the Coca Cola Santa Claus and his entourage replace both men more and more. *nag* :(

I sometimes think that Americans missed out on a lot of important things when they decided to forget that they had ever been Europeans. I say that as a resident of the SE U.S. I'm not complaining, but it would serve us well to get back in touch with our roots.

I always thought that Krampus was who the "bad children" received a visit from instead of St. Nick. *shrug* The stories probably vary by a lot. Thank you. :)

"I always thought that Krampus was who the "bad children" received a visit from instead of St. Nick. *shrug* The stories probably vary by a lot. Thank you. :) (Smile)"

INDEED - only now after reading the German wiki pages about "Krampus" and "Knecht Ruprecht" I learned that while in some regions (like the one where I grew up) those two names stood most of the time for one and the same person (so Ruprecht was sometimes called Krampus and vice versa), in other places (like most of Austria?) there is only Krampus and he's more an independent demon than a servant of Saint Nick. And then there are also regions where there is only the servant Knecht Ruprecht and Krampus is not really known there. Wheew, manifold folklore! :O
So basically I was writing about the Knecht Ruprecht - Krampus mixture, you were more thinking of the Austrian Krampus, I guess. :)
