Pope Lick Monster

The Pope Lick Monster is a legendary half-man, half-goat creature reported to live beneath a railroad trestle bridge over Pope Lick Creek in Louisville, KY. Is he an escaped circus freak or the product of an ill fated union between a local farmer and his goats? No one can be sure. Some rumors blame him for a train derailment. Some claim he frightens travelers into leaping from the trestle to their deaths, while others say he holds them down on the tracks himself ala’ Snidely Whiplash. Travelers beware! He lurks in wait……

I created this Pope Lick Monster for the “cryptid” prompt for Mab’s Drawloween Club 2018. His head, hands, and hooves are sculpted from polymer clay, which I painted and then attached with flexible wire to his soft stuffed body. His body is made from black mohair and is semi-poseable. He comes with a 3″ black stand and is approximately 7″ tall. He’s available for adoption in the shop.
