Monsters of the World: Dullahan of Ireland

Palette:    black  white-32  yellow-32
G’s age:    


Our new monster is the Dullahan, a headless horseman, or woman, who is said to be the inspiration for the headless horseman in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This mystical creature carries his head in one hand, and a whip made of dead human’s spine in the other! Scary.

Don’t worry, though. All you need is a bit of gold to drive him away.
