A Viking Life for Me

This wonderful tableaux of a Viking's every day carry comes to us from Swedish artist Gustav E. Eriksson. Surprisingly, it was done as part of his application to a propmaking program, which makes it even more impressive.

Cthulhu Fhtagn! Shima Edition.

Cthulhu tiki mugs aren't really my cup of tea, no pun intended, but I really like this piece from Chris Shima.  It's a great sculpt without the cheesiness of most offerings.

He Rises From the Sea

This past weekend was the annual Revere Beach Sand Sculpting contest in Boston.  One of the highlights was this tribute to H.P. Lovecraft from Russian artist Dmitry Klimenko, photographed by Grey213.  You'll be seeing sculptures like this on every beach once the stars are right.

The Good Shubin

Ukrainian artist Alice Tochylovska returns to our pages with this Shubin, a species of fae that protects miners.

This Kobold is kind and helpfull. This old man can smell the gas leaks and beware the miners,saving them from danger. He rings his bell to send the warning message. The legend says - if you hear the ring, quickly get out and save yourself. The shubin legend is popular around Donbas and inspired several bars to name their business after the infamous spirit. The creature even inspired its own brand of beer – Good Shubin.

Protective Measures

Before you delve into things man was not meant to know, best to have some protection.  S.D. Williams returns to our pages with this Elder Sign tablet pendant.  I wish I could get a macro shot half as nice as this one.

The Box of Astaroth

Dan Baines returns to our pages with the Box of Astaroth, a seemingly innocuous mantle piece display that contains some very dark items.
The strange occult fetish is a fetus skull adorned with bells and bones. Spells and curses have been hammered into the head with coffin nails; reminiscent of rituals past. The dark history that surrounds this box and the evil it has witnessed are up to the client to fabricate but I think I've given him enough mileage for a convincingly disturbing tale.
