The vast majority of Darger’s works incorporate images rendered by scaled tracing.  This is a very rare image for Darger, as it is entirely hand drawn.  The beast depicted is a young Tuskorhorian Blengin based upon its unique horns, which emerge from the side of the head in a spiral.  Darger says that they are “the most poisonous of all the Blengiglomenean creatures” and have “with short tails. Their Tuskorhorian horns are long, and the points have a shape like a spear...They are, however, exceedingly docile, and never have harmed a Glandelinian, except to protect its young, or help children enslaved by the Glandelinians” (Henry Darger, The Realms, Vol. 1, Chapter 4, p. 32).
