Unforgettable Face I just don't like something about this character. This carved face makes me a little uneasy. Perhaps I’ve simply read a few too many stories of the occult or supernatural and have more than a passing belief in animism and traveling spirits, but the glittering eyes and all those teeth really do me in. It’s just the hand-carved head of a walking stick, and the artist may have intended something vaguely threatening in the image he carved. It could also be that the spirit of a long-dead being who died millennia ago on the spot where the stick was carved found the portal to take revenge on the world that discarded him.
