Krampus Masks and Mask

Bosmans works as a careful gatherer of material culled from cultural memories folk art, heraldry, maps, legends, alphabets and symbols that were once common and close to home in his native Belgium. While most of this work is done on a custom-order basis, in a handful of towns one finds retailers offering Krampus supplies year-round and under one roof. Despite the traditional inclination to work with local artisans, the growing popularity of Krampus, has given birth to bigger superstores like , which not only ships overseas, but has translated their site into English.

Formal elements and ideologies intrinsic to the studied phenomena open up a realm of meaning that both surpasses and celebrates their original functions. In a future post, we will offer some cheap options for various Krampus or Krampus-like body coverings as well as other options for easily adaptable off-the-shelf masks.
