Standing at an unlucky 13 inches this little demon god delights me. My fourth marionette and I think my most successful . He actually functions and he came out pretty much as planned.

My intention had been to play off a painting I had made a few year back, The Alpha and the Omega. I think I got it.
The Alpha and the Omega
acrylic and mixed medium on canvas
another inspiration were those crazy-assed demons that are always tormenting poor St. Anthony of the Desert.
I’m happy with the face in the center of his chest, the gaping Hell Mouth, the cute little snake and the phallic schnozze. I’m also liking his little serpentine booties. The gods of the Underworld were notoriously stupid, but this fellow is pretty snazzy.
I have a deadline to meet so I will be painting a bit, but I will return to PuppetLand pronto.
Until then, be well, Lg
