CoastConFan did a very nice writeup about the Arkham Sanitarium props. The post includes this picture, showing a nifty Cthulhu (Cthulhoid?) sculpture. What interests me about the piece is that it looks like something that was actually excavated from a dig, and that's a very tough effect to pull off. Cthulhu idols are normally approached as art pieces meant for display, so there's a natural tendency to craft idealized depictions that appeal to modern tastes. That's not a bad thing in the slightest, but this one goes in a different direction, both in finish and design, and I really like the result.
