The DBH 10k 5th Place

Major congrats to thestray on Design By Humans for this amazing win of his. The winning designs name is Umibozu. I don't actually know what it means, haha. But this is what stray said in his description that sums it up pretty well:

"Umibōzu (Japanese: 海坊主 sea bonze) is a spirit in Japanese folklore. The Umibōzu is said to live in the ocean and capsize the ship of anyone who dares speak to it. This spirit’s name, which combines the character for “sea” with the character of “Buddhist monk,” is possibly related to the fact that the Umibōzu is said to have a large, round head, resembling the shaven heads of Buddhist monks. Alternatively they are enormous Yokai (spectres) that appear to shipwreck victims and fishermen. They are believed to be drowned priests, and exhibit the shaven head and typically appears to be praying."

Now, on to today's feature:

This nice little design is by famousafterdeath on Teextile. The title is WARNING: Handle With Care. Portraying the idea that someone is made of glass inside. At least, that's what I gather from it. Either way, this design is simple with only 2 colors but to some people could be quite meaningful.
