Cthulhu Fhtagn! Loincloth Edition, Part Deux.

Hovito Loincloth's unique Cthulhu idol was first featured hereback in November. He's now revisited the sculpt, refining some of the details and tweaking the figure's pose.

This piece has a sense of movement and sinister purpose. The figure is tilted slightly forward, ready step forward and the tentacles seem to squirm, but not exactly writhe – which is all the more grotesque. The head is helm-like based on a mad and diseased elephant’s visage, but yet hinting at a nautilus shell also.

The base is an obscure, possibly living pedestal such as a malignant coral life form covered in mouths or closed eyes. I’ve got to say that this sculpt has managed to break out of the standard Cthulhu Mythos mould and makes something else new. My congratulations to the sculptor!
