Perhaps Cthulhu, but it actually looks like something the fishfolk of Arkham might wear. Paleolithic Venus figures are pretty interesting, if for nothing else but the variety. They show a certain ritualism and abstract figure. For example the Venus of Willendorf apparently has a basket over her head. Slightly off the subject, I’ve been a fan of Cycladic figures including some of the stranger ones such as the double headed (arrow headed) ones, the violin shaped figures, and plank idols. This new Cthulhu Venus prop figure is quite enjoyable.http://www.academia.edu/549751/Sexual_ambiguity_in_plank_figures_from_Bronze_Age_Cyprus http://www.ancient.eu/article/457/ http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/an-anatolian-marble-two-headed-idol-circa-late-4722436-details.aspx?intObjectID=4722436http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/a-syrian-marble-double-eye-idol-tell-4722440-details.aspx?pos=5&intObjectID=4722440&sid=&page=4&lid=1
Oh, you evil, evil person! I could in no way afford to be shown that website! Especially with my wife looking over my shoulder at the mounted-stone necklaces! Aiiiii! H. P. Lovecraft, even when married, didn't have the Shopping Web to contend with!
I really like that pitted texture.
Someone bought this fit me as a birthday gift. It's quite awesome.
