Artifact of the Elder Sign

Bill Henar brings us this intriguing artifact bearing the Elder Sign.  Amazingly, it's actually a high-end fidget spinner.  I thankfully avoided getting caught up in that fad, but the coolness of this design is enough to make me reconsider.

Primitive Cthulhu Idol

Tom Fournier brings us this intriguing primitive Cthulhu idol.  Despite artifacts like this, "science" continues to deny that the cult of the Great Old One has been active for millennia.

Update: Things that make you go "Hmmmm....".

Cthulhu Fhtagn! Sainz Edition.

I really like this take on the traditional Cthulhu idol from Artist David R. Sainz.  It does a good job of capturing the basics of Lovecraft's original sketch without too slavishly reproducing the clumsier details.

Alchemical Tomes

Alex Libris returns to our pages with this pair of masterfully done alchemical tomes.  Beyond the obvious craftsmanship it's a good example of how alternate finishes impact the appearance of essentially identical items.

Great Cthulhu

At first blush, you wouldn't expect a fantastic piece of Mythos art from an artist using the moniker SueZ Q.  Yet here we are.  She brings us this commissioned Cthulhu sculpt, currently available as a resin casting.

Adorable Cthulhu

One of the biggest issues with the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and the genre of cosmic horror as a whole, is how difficult it is to draw in new fans.  People don't want to be reminded that they're insignificant before the might and power of cosmic forces beyond their understanding.  It's just depressing!

That's why I love seeing things like this gaggle of adorable Cthulhu figures from Mystic Reflections.  It makes the Mythos so much more accessible to the mainstream, and isn't that what we really need?
