Door #21: Kosher Monsters

Since tonight’s both the second night of Hanukkah and the eve of Cephalopodmas, it seemed the perfect time to link to Nina Paley’s animations of the three monsters of Jewish mythology, which she’s working on for her upcoming film Seder Masochism.

Ziz the air monster appears above, Leviathan, the water monster, below. You can also click here to see a video of her extra-stompy land monster, Behemoth.

Paley, a comic artist and intellectual copyright activist, is best known as the creator of Sita Sings the Blues, an animated feature-length retelling of the Ramayana that she distributes under a Creative Commons license.
