Blemmyae Warrior

The Blemmyae were a tribe believed to exist in ancient times, somewhere in Africa (usually Nubia or Kush). According to Pliny the Elder, they had no heads, their faces embedded in their torso. And according to Sir Walter Raleigh (!!!!), they were cannibals.

 

Yeah. Everybody believed in them until people finally put their heads on straight recently.

 

ANYWAY, the Blemmyae Warrior presents a unique mixture of alien and ancient designs, like an idol from outer space. it's a great addition to the Universe of Violence, and an awesome tribute to a certain hard-to-find Monster in my Pocket.
