This imposing individual has a mouth full of pointed teeth and carries two smaller figures atop his head. Everything about him seems massive and awe inspiring. Is this some ancient Quimbaya Goliath, so large he wears lesser mortals on his hat? Or is he merely a normal human, masquerading as a golden giant? - (PF.0794)
