Schnabelperchten -Austrian Christmas Folklore – Limited Edition Lino Print


3 in stock

“Garrrr Garrr!”
Alongside traditional Alpine Christmas figures such as St Nicholas and the Krampus, there are groups of other figures who come out around the festive season, and this figure focusses on punishing naughty or lazy little girls.
These figures come under the umbrella term “Perchta”, and this design is specifically based on the Austrian variety, the Schnabelperchten. Like the Krampus, she may wear a basket to carry off badly behaved little girls, her scissors are for at the very least threatening to disembowel her quarry, and in the extreme, their use, filling their subject with sawdust and sewing them up.
Now…Have you been good? Have you REALLY been good, though?

Water-based teal, matte ink print on white 220 gsm paper, hand-hand pressed with a spoon and touched up by hand also to give it a consistent tone all over. Writing is also hand inked on.
