This was an Ogre from Germany. The name roughly translates as ‘Child-Guzzler’ as it was fond of eating children. Stories of the Ogre originated in the Middle Ages at the time of printing and these stories were used to scare misbehaved children by nursemaids. Since the 17th century this Ogre became a town creature preserved in effigies.
