Caption

The terrifying Lamia from Edward Topsell's 'The History of Foure-Footed Beasts' 1607. My later colouring. A scaly quadruped with the hind legs of a goat, fore legs of a bear and the chest and head of a woman. Topsell states that when a lamia sees a man they 'lay open their breastes, and by the beauty thereof, entice them to come neare to conference, and so having them within their compasse, they devoure and kill them'.
