Krampus

by Kelley Hensing

Krampus has a long history, believed to date back to pre-Germanic pagan times. He was later incorporated into various European Christmas traditions, following along side St. Nicholas as a dark companion. St. Nick took care of the good children while Krampus helped discipline the bad, (and in some cases carried them away with him in his basket).

The demon-like figure carries a bundle of birch branches that can be used as switches and he is often portrayed with chains, which are thought to symbolize attempted limitations by the Christian Church. Some stories say he lured children with treats or that he could be distracted himself by an offering of fruit.

Also a thank you to someone special. While I don’t think a Christmas demon was what she had in mind, she had suggested that since it’s December I should do something holiday-themed. Thanks mom!  : )

Traveling is her only other passion equal to a career in art and is a vital component of inspiring her work.
