A nure-onna (濡女, lit. "wet woman") is an amphibious creature with the head of a woman and the body of a snake. While the description of her appearance varies slightly from story to story, she has been described as being 300 m in length and often has snake-like eyes, long claws, fangs and long, beautiful hair. She is typically spotted on a shore, washing her hair.
The Nure-onna's intentions are unknown. In some stories, she is a monstrous being who is powerful enough to crush trees with her tail and feeds on humans. She carries with her a small, baby-like bundle, which she uses to attract potential victims. If a well-intentioned person offers to hold the baby for her, the nure-onna will let them.When they attempt to discard the bundle, however, it is revealed that it is not a baby at all,but a bundle of heavy stones.The bundle of stones becomes incredibly heavy and prevents the victim from fleeing. She then uses her long, snake-like tongue to suck all the blood from her victim’s body. In other stories, a nure-onna is simply seeking solitude as she washes her hair and reacts violently to those who bother her.
Here's my Nure-onna action figure complete with baby-like bundle of stones accessory.I sculpted her head from clay.For the body I used a yellow CTVT Torso,arms,and one leg(I reversed the leg)which I sculpted over entirely(except the hands)with clay.I painted the entire figure with acrylic paints and sealed with Mod-podge.I sculpted her baby-like Stone-bundle accessory from clay and painted with acrylics and sealed with Mod-podge.
