The green Demons from Europe

The devil is often depicted in green. The devil as a hunter for poor souls is an old motif, but the devil has only appeared in hunter’s suit since romanticism. In medieval images, the devil is still a cross between a snake and a dragon. Western demons usually have the toxic colours of green and yellow, or they are green and black.
