A pair of gnophkeh from Clark Ashton Smith's Hyperborean Cycle. Not to be confused with the non-humanoid and similarly named Gnoph-keh, these brutish humanoids are enemies of both the voormis and early Hyperborean human tribes. The description of the gnophkeh as hairy cannibals, with large ears and proboscidean noses, gives me the mental image of much more vicious Melmacians. The voormis are described as having reddish fur, so the loincloths on these two are meant to be made of voormis skins.
