Denizen of the Witch House

"All the objects—organic and inorganic alike—were totally beyond description or even comprehension. Gilman sometimes compared the inorganic masses to prisms, labyrinths, clusters of cubes and planes, and Cyclopean buildings; and the organic things struck him variously as groups of bubbles, octopi, centipedes, living Hindoo idols, and intricate Arabesques roused into a kind of ophidian animation."

-H.P. Lovecraft, Dreams In the Witch-House

This octopoidal horror comes to us from Swedish artist Richard Svensson.  It's based on an original concept sketch from KingOvRats, itself inspired by the multi-dimensional denizens in Lovecraft's "Dreams in the Witch House".
