The Mantle of Cthulhu

Artist Cadu Hoffmann created this wonderful Mantle of Cthulhu using real bones and resin. What I really like is the way it incorporates flowing organic shapes into something truly alien without falling into the trap of "Gigerism", an all too prevalent disease characterized by slavish imitation of H. R. Giger's biomechanical style without an appreciation for it's grace or beauty.

Browse through his gallery and you'll find more artifacts of note, including a fantastic battle helmet.
