Sneak Peek & Story of APALALA by Toby Dutkiewicz
Toby Dutkiewicz of Devil Headquarters shares with us a blurry sneak peek at a new vinyl toy to come after Alavaka: Introducing APALALA! And this is his story….
"The 'Ta fang hsi-yu chi' by Hsuan-tsang (a Chinese scholar who wrote about India) tells the story of Apalala. Kasyapa Buddha was a man with the power to control the weather. He did so by controlling the evil dragons that possessed the power to bring storms. In return for his good will in controlling these storms, the local people offered him grain. Eventually, the people started to forget to offer the grain and Kasyapa grew angry. He prayed that he would become a dragon, so that he could punish them for their selfish behavior.
