Bosch used a lot of egg imagery in his demon pieces, so of course Bruegel follows suit. I like the tree branch and the saw sticking out, and the odd little “stinger” on the opposite end of the egg. I’m not seeing any wings, either, but I really hope this devil can still fly around. I want to see that. I want this stupid egg duck devil to just buzz around in the air like a little zeppelin. You laugh at the thought, maybe, but it wouldn’t look as funny in person. Well, a little funny.
I am tagging this all as “goblin” with the excuses that
a. the word “goblin” is used like one time, and
b. I find the descriptions goblinspirational.
