The Clutchbone The Faceless One Brandenburg Woodcut Schlankwald Der Großmann Der Ritter Babylonian Brazilian Cave Paintings Biblical Ancient Civilizations Antioch, a Roman city, was a chief center of Christianity. The earliest argued reference. Der Ritter, or “The Knight”, is the name of a 16th century woodcut dating around 1540 by German Hans Freckenberg. A second woodcut by Freckenberg details seemingly the same skeletal monster with multiple arms stealing a child from a family. Or “The Tall Man” is another 16th century German myth with associated woodcuts. A 1550s dated woodcut, found in Brandenburg, Germany, author unknown, depicts a man in a modern suit with arms like tentacles. The Clutchbone was a seven-foot monster who dates back to the early 1800's in Northern England. The Faceless One is a lullaby that dates back to 18th century Wales. Sneaks into childrens bedrooms.
Babylonians believed in a specific demon called the alu, a "half-man, half-devil" without a face. Mount Silpius displayed a huge carving of a faceless head, which pagans held was Charon, a deity who damned souls to the Underworld. These paintings show a strangely elongated character leading a child by the hand. Fear Dubh Fear Dubh is a Rare Scottish legend concerning a malevolent entity that haunts footpaths and forests at night. It used to be connected to the Christian devil, but most of its characteristics are closer to that of a primitive Slender Man. The Clutchbone is an exceptionally violent nature. Mainly destruction with fire. North America Paintings had no hint of extra appendages. Hans Frickenberg went missing shortly after, in late 1543. Translated by researcher James Rossi, it describes a guardian of the forest who takes children and hunts for those who enter the woodland. The period in which Schlandkwald was written is unknown. Translated account from 1702 suggests that there was some truth to the tale. It was used to scare small children to stay indoors and keep pesky children from snooping in the woods without their family. Described as being black in color with leathery skin. The Clutchbone is often related to strange weather patterns. It was created by parents as a way of scaring their children into staying away from the forests. Children often disappeared in the night and were found in the forest, mutilated almost beyond recognition.
