Ankou 

Another unique find

A particular form of death is personalized by Ankou. In Brittany, Ankou is Death, whokills one who sees or hears. He is depicted with a scythe or a dart. His scythe is conventionally mounted backwards, cutting outward. There are a multitude of very old Breton legends, told by Anatole Le Braz in particular. One of it states how Ankou rides a cart pulled by a skinny nag, (small riding horse) while making a terrible noise as it scraps along. The one who sees or hears Ankoo dies within a few hours.
