Goblin 1 is a mask created for Enchantment Theatre in Philadelphia. This Goblin was the leader in a goblin dance celebrating the great Snow queen and her power over the world. His tongue is bo th a symbol of welcome and that of evil bidding at the same time. Like most goblins his existence exists to disturb the peace and cuase trouble for others.
The goblin is a mythical being. They first appear in Germanic fairy tales and British folklore. They are mischievous, live in dark places and cause trouble wherever they can. In some ways they are the trickster characters in stories. Other cultures have goblin like characters. The Zimbabwe character of zvikwambo and the tengu of Japan are both goblin type characters similar to the goblins of Europe.
The Goblin armies of Morador are worth recreating with these ridiculous masks.
