Yule Cat

The Yule Cat (Jólakötturinn) is a giant mountain dwelling cat from Icelandic folklore who would hunt and eat anyone who did not receive new clothing before Yule. Usually depicted as monstrous, I imagined Yule Cat as a loaf-shaped-mountain-sized kitten, ready to pounce on anyone who dared to leave their little turf houses without new clothing.

Artwork is 10x10x2" framed, cut fabric, ink, and colored pencil.

First exhibited at Gargoyle's "Dark Winter's Night" show in December 2019.
