Bone Cthulhu Pendant

Bone pendant depicting the head of the god Cthulhu.  Of Icelandic origin, found on the coast of Ísafjörður.  Auctioned by Miskatonic University in 1931 and held by a private collector to the present.  Size 20x48x13 mm.
This beautiful bone Cthulhu pendant comes to us from the Miskatonic Auction Project.  As someone who has tried to sculpt a minimalist, stylized Cthulhu I want to point out just how difficult a piece like this is.  Without the ornate textures of most sculpts you need to have a lot of skill to pull it off.
