According to the online Pictorial Dictionary at this monster is a charge in period armory:
"The "troll" is a charge from Scandinavian heraldry, found in the canting arms of Trolle, c.1440 [Raneke 412-413].  (It is sometimes, erroneously, blazoned a "devil" outside Scandinavia.)  The heraldic troll is distinguished by having no head:  its face is embedded in its torso.  It has clawed hands and feet, and a tail; by

default, it is shown passant, with the head in full view, and one hand holding the tail."
The depiction used here is directly derived from the image provided in the article in the Pictorial Dictionary as cited above.
