Product Description

Goblin head miniature of the Greek folklore Kallikantzaros.  A malevolent Christmas Goblin in Southeastern European and Anatolian folklore, part of Eastern Mediterranean Ethno-Archaeology and folk material culture in this region. Stories about the Kallikantzaros or its equivalents (караконджул, karankoncolos etc) can be found in Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia and Turkey. Kallikantzaroi (plural) are believed to dwell underground but come to the surface reeking havoc during the twelve days of Christmas (from the winter solstice for a fortnight during which time the sun ceases its seasonal movement). It is believed that Kallikantzaroi stay underground all year round, sawing the world tree so that it will collapse (stark parallels with other Indo-European mythemes), along with the Earth. However, according to folklore, when they are about to saw the final part each year, Christmas dawns and they are able to come to the surface. They forget the tree and come to bring trouble and mischief (usually harmless in good fun) to mortals. Finally, on the Epiphany (6 January), the sun appears moving again, and they must return underground to continue their sawing. They see that during their absence the world tree has healed itself, so they must start working all over again (this is believed to occur annually). Many in the Greek speaking world imagine the Kallikantzaros as tall, black and hairy creatures, with the horns, feet and ears of a goat and other hybrid characteristics of similar goblins. One theory connects them to the masquerades of the ancient Roman winter festival of Bacchanalia, and this based on preceding Greek Dionysia festivities. During the drunken, orgiastic parts of the festivals, people wearing masks, hidden under costumes in bestial shapes yet still appearing humanoid, may have initiated the creature’s origins myth.
