Turkish artist Seda Civan brings us this intriguing Cthulhu idol. The fired clay finish is just outstanding. This really looks like something uncovered during an excavation.

We've featured an increasing number of Cthulhu idols that were sculpted digitally and then 3D printed. Unfortunately, many of them take a serious quality hit because of the layering effect produced as the molten filament builds up the physical model. This very nice design from Dürum & Bass handily dodges that problem. I really like how the facial tentacles taper down to fine, curving tendrils.

We continue our theme of international Lovecraftiana with this resin Cthulhu idol from Mexican artist Abraham Cruz.

"All the objects—organic and inorganic alike—were totally beyond description or even comprehension. Gilman sometimes compared the inorganic masses to prisms, labyrinths, clusters of cubes and planes, and Cyclopean buildings; and the organic things struck him variously as groups of bubbles, octopi, centipedes, living Hindoo idols, and intricate Arabesques roused into a kind of ophidian animation."
-H.P. Lovecraft, Dreams In the Witch-House
This octopoidal horror comes to us from Swedish artist Richard Svensson. It's based on an original concept sketch from KingOvRats, itself inspired by the multi-dimensional denizens in Lovecraft's "Dreams in the Witch House".
