Limited Edition

Artist Gage Prentiss brings us this ultra-limited edition recreation of the Shining Trapezohedron. To get one you'll have to win the Robert Bloch award.

That’s a nice presentation of an object that really just can’t be depicted, which is a primary problem with a number of Lovecraft props. Colors that are not of this earth or spectrum, angles that defy geometry & etc are hard to nail down in a physical prop. Maybe a small laser embedded in the stand under the stone would jazz up things, especially if it was set up with an electronic flicker function like these electric candles that are so popular now.

The shining trapezoid is also mirrored in the Jorge Luis Borges short story The Aleph (1945) and appears in some collections of Borges works, but I especially recommend Collected Fictions as the best-one-stop-shop.

Truly a thing of beauty(from a certain point of view)from all others..still a joy to behold or perhaps..... worrying.

What is the stone?

Needs must step up my writing ability, I perceive.

@ Jason Arons

From the description I believe it's cast resin.

Hello, I made this piece. It is all made out of cast resin, and inside the gem is a little three lobe eyed creature that pulses and glows with a red light. The wooden base holds all the batteries and electronics. I wish I had a good video to post of it glowing. Thanks
