In 1935 Professor Nathaniel Peaslee of Miskatonic University lead an expedition into the Great Sandy Desert of Australia to investigate ruins allegedly dating dating back thousands of years. For years rumors have swirled about what the party actually discovered buried there in the sand. Were the ruins the sole surviving evidence of a culture dating to before the accepted settlement of the continent? Or, as have some have speculated, were they all that was left of an ancient city intimately tied to Prof. Peaslee's own well-documented history of amnesia and strangely detailed dreams?
The world may never know the answers to those questions, but now you can own these commemorative reproductions of the embroidered patch and lapel pin worn by members of the Miskatonic Australian Expedition.
Both the patch and pin are based on the expedition's original logo design. The rayed sun motif of the Miskatonic University seal rises from from behind the deep-red stone of Ayer's Rock, while above them are two stylized Aboriginal glyphs- the horizontal parallel lines symbolizing a journey surmounted by the concentric circles marking a destination or campsite. Below that, the latin phrase "Ab Aeterno" or "From the beginning of time", the expedition's motto.
The embroidered shoulder patch is 4" in diameter and features a heat-seal backing so it can be ironed-on to clothing.
The 1" lapel pin is die-stamped from antiqued brass and features a butterfly clasp backing.
This is a short run, fan-based project based on H. P. Lovecraft's classic "The Shadow Out of Time". There are a limited number of patches and combined patch and pin sets available.
