Silhouetted Krampus Chasing a Young Girl

Description

This postcard has a white background with a large red heart in the center. In front of the red heart is the silhouette of a young girl with braided pig-tails running from the Krampus as it throws a ball, chain, and bundle of branches at her. The Krampus has horns and fluffy sleeves and collar and has a basket of items on its back which is falling off. A small terrier dog pulls on the Krampus' tail in the bottom right corner. In red lettering against a black background it reads "Gruss vom Krampus!"
