Cthulhu Fhtagn! NoahW Edition.

For a work in progress this Cthulhu statuette by NoahW is hitting all the right buttons. It takes the basic forms of Lovecraft's idol sketch and moves in a very alien direction. One of the things I love about collecting idol images is comparing how different artists have wildly varying approaches to the same basic subject matter. This is a look I don't think I've seen before, particularly the interesting interpretation of the hands.
