The Devil Made Do It

While wandering around the countryside, actually in Ledyard Connecticut. I drove by this old Colonial Home with what I thought was a Lawn Jockey.. I turned around and to my surprise it was a Devil........... I think..... What do you think? Yes' its old and made of wood, has a peg leg but what does it symbolize? Your guess is as good as mine....Enjoy...

I have no idea. It looks like a cross between a pirate, a devil or green man and what does the light symbolise? Maybe it was made by an artist or sculptor?

Maybe it was a Kobold?

Kobold
Looks like you are right.. I never knew that..Very interesting..The little light is new.. I'll bet in the past there was some kind of candle in that little frame..
From Wikipedia............"Kobold beliefs are evidence of the survival of pagan customs after the Christianisation of Germany. Belief in kobolds dates to at least the 13th century, when German peasants carved kobold effigies for their homes."

Re: Kobold
I read more into Kobolds, and it's similar to the Swedish tomte...particular the one that watches over your house and does chores, but also causes mischief if they feel like they aren't treated right.

Another thing to consider is that this may be the Horned One...the god that Wiccans follow (although I don't know him to have the candle).

Re: Kobold
I never knew that either!

I wonder if it has anything to do with the saying, 'Between the Devil and the deep blue sea'?

Re: Kobold
Might explain his pirate garb.

I hope you get to the bottom of it!
