The Tapagoz are a race of one-eyed Giants. Their name derives from the Azerbaijani/ Turkish words ‘tapa’ meaning head and ‘goz’ meaning eye. Some accounts describe them as having 3 heads while other acounts describe them as having only one head. One head of a Tapagoz weighs 1,800 pounds and one tooth is the equivalent of 180 pounds. One story tells how a Tapagoz stole Smizar, the daughter of King Zarzand. A hero named Zurab who was later named Aslam, went to the Giant’s castle, defeated the Tapagoz and freed Smizar.
