Quibungo by GafanhotoVerde Quibungo by GafanhotoVerde
This is a work made to the contest: Local folklore in the #Traditional-Artists (Artists of Tradition...) Group.

QUIBUNGO aka Kibungo Chibungo [link]

The Quibungo is a monster legend used to scare children when then behave badly. Is some sort of Brazilian bogeyman. It's histories in general include songs. In Congo and Angola Quibungo means “wolf”, but it can be interpreted as “robber” or “invader”. They say that the creature is half man half beast, has a large head and a hole in the back. The hole (or mouth) opens when when it lowers its head, and with it, it devouer the children. It prefers to kill childrens and small animals. Is also said that can be killed or defeated by any weapon, and that it dies screaming, and is very cowardly.

I used Watercolour and China Ink (Nanquim).
