LENGIAN

LENGIAN
"The mouths of the men who came from it to trade were too wide, and the way their turbans were humped up in two points above their foreheads was in especially bad taste. And their shoes were the shortest and queerest ever seen in the Six Kingdoms."
 "They leaped as though they had hooves instead of feet, and seemed to wear a sort of wig or headpiece with small horns. Of other clothing they had none, but most of them were quite furry. Behind they had dwarfish tails, and when they glanced upward he saw the excessive width of their mouths. Then he knew what they were, and that they did not wear any wigs or headpieces after all. For the cryptic folk of Leng were of one race with the uncomfortable merchants of the black galleys that traded rubies at Dylath-Leen."
H.P. Lovecraft, Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath

  1. I love your work. Whenever I read any of the books now, I come here to see if what I imagine matches your vision. Though, whenever I read those descriptions of the lengian/strange merchants, I always imagined them to be satyr. This is a pretty inspired interpretation.
