As the curator of The Strange World of Albrecht Dürer and the guest judge of the “Name This Beast” contest, I want to thank everyone who entered a name (or two or three!) for Dürer’s many-headed beast.
I had a blast reading your fabulous names during my lunch break on Friday. We had 67 entries, and they were so great that I couldn’t stop at just one winner, so I chose one winner and six runners up in honor of our friend’s seven heads.
The runners up:
Susan St. Pierre—Horrosept
Laura Szczepanik—Monstercolia I
and our grand-prize winner is…
Christine Ciskowski, who has named the beast
Congratulations to all, and hope you’ll come meet Sir Ravenous in person!
