Twist on the PY Myths: Mboi Picture

The new Paraguayan Mythology Suite: Mboi Tu'i

Chapter 2:

Kerana, asediada permanentemente por Tau, parió un hijo cada siete lunas. Todos sietemesinos. Todos fenómenos deformes. Todos malvados.

El segundo hijo del mal vio la luz con la forma de una gran sierpe con cabeza de loro y un descomunal pico. Su bífida lengua, roja como la sangre. Su piel escamosa y veteada. Su cabeza emplumada. Su mirada maléfica. Se le conoce con el nombre de Mbói Tui, ronda por los esteros y protege a los anfibios. Adora la humedad y las flores. Se lo puede identificar sin verlo pues lanza terribles y potentes graznidos que se escuchan desde tantísimas lejanías.

Kerana, permanently besieged by Tau, bore a son every seventh moon. All of them born on the seven month. All of them deformed aberrations. All of them evil.
The second son of evil saw the light for the first time in his serpent-shaped body, parrot-like head and enormous beak. His serpent tongue was as red as blood. His skin scaly and veined. His head feathered. His evil look. He is known by the name of Mbói Tui. He lingers in swamps and protects amphibians. He delights in humid places and loves flowers. He may be identified without being seen, for he gaggles loudly and can be heard from afar.
