Ween - forest spirit
I was definitely thinking about the forest spirit in Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke for this one. Channeling some of the energy from that creature and applying it to a band hailing from Bucks County who, to this day, remains a mysterious musical enigma made sense in my brain. The face is a blend of deer goat and greater kudu. The birds that flank the creature left and right are meant to abstractly represent the idea of duality that exists between Gene and Dean's personas.
