This necklace features a vintage image of the ultimate Christmas baddy, Krampus. The image is set in resin and glass and hand wrapped with copper wire. The whole piece has been oxidized and polished to bring out the depth of the wrap and give it an antique appeal. It measures right at 2 inches and will come on a cord necklace.
* Matching chains can be purchased separately.
❄️ Krampus is a folkloric legend mainly focused in Central Europe. He is depicted as a horned figure and is described as half goat and half demon. During the Christmas season, he punishes the children who have misbehaved in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. In several regions he is seen as one of the companions of Saint Nicholas including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia. While his origins are unclear most folklorists and anthropologists agree that he is pre-Christian.
