The Medieval Mythos

Robert Altbauer brings us this medieval-style illumination of a historic confrontation with a shoggoth.  I love the idea of historians assuming things like this are metaphorical images, while more Mythos-aware researchers know what's really going on.  Mr. Altbauer has a number of similar illustrations in his gallery

Love this sort of idea. The Mythos creeping up in different cultures at different periods. Like it's ALWAYS juuuuust below the surface of our world, and occasionally crawls up.
