Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleLike this:Like Loading... 6 Comments Kăk-whăn’-û-ghăt Kǐg-û-lu’-nǐk is my guess LikeLike Are we looking at some sort of non-existent chimera or an interpretation of a real animal? I suppose for our ancestors those two categories were somewhat blurry. The Arabic script makes me wonder if it’s a middle-eastern attempt at depicting a Huponiu, an kind of amphibious ox/yak from China often described and depicted with sail-like fins on their backs. LikeLike Orca, dogfish, akhlut/ it’s actual name that’s too long LikeLike Why is everyone going after the Inuit monster, when it’s obviously has a form of Islamic script? Also, I say a jackal or a hyena. LikeLike I thought it seems akhlut, but the characters and drawing stroke looks like west asian styles. Is it Brethmechin? sorry for awful English. LikeLike Could this perhaps be some sort of interpretation of a Telchine? LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
