HUALLEPEN

Mapuche Demoness

Also known as Guallipen, Huaillepenyi, Huallipen, Huallipenyi, Wallipén

A revolting Fog Monster

She is a mixed-up creature in the form of a ewe with a calf’s head and a seal’s tail.

She lurks on the banks of rivers and sea shores and leaps out on the unwary. We regret that she is responsible for deformed children being born. Probably due to the fright.
