"The Krampus and Olaf the Naughty German Boy" custom Dunny set by Mikie Graham

Temperatures are dropping, sunset is coming early, and the first sign of snow fall has begun. Winter is officially here! In the frosty spirit of the season Mikie Graham would like to unveil his new creation. A pair of custom Dunnys named "The Krampus and Olaf the Naughty German Boy" Based on an ancient Germanic folk legend, the Krampus was a wild beast that traveled along side Saint Nicholas. While Saint Nick would hand out gifts to the good boys and girls of the tiny mountain towns, the Krampus was there too but for darker reasons, delivering brutal punishment in the form of whipping and beatings from his fresh cut switches and rusty chains. Specially wicked children would be thrown into his wicker basket and dragged off to the pits of hell for additional torment.

To this day many small towns through Austria and Hungry celebrate Krampus day on December 5th, when the young men dress up in elaborate demon costumes and drunkenly rampage through town to the delight of tourists and children alike. Crafted from an 8" and 3" pair of Dunnys, Mikie's wicked creation features real metal chains, wicker switches, and a hand sculpted basket that perfectly holds Olaf who you will notice sports his fanciest pair of brown Lederhosen! Created specially for Stranger Factory's "Winter Salon," the Krampus is currently available for sale. Check out the Winter Salon's preview list HERE for more details.
