The Shining Trapezohedron

Of the Shining Trapezohedron he speaks often, calling it a window on all time and space, and tracing its history from the days it was fashioned on dark Yuggoth, before ever the Old Ones brought it to earth. It was treasured and placed in its curious box by the crinoid things of Antarctica, salvaged from their ruins by the serpent-men of Valusia, and peered at aeons later in Lemuria by the first human beings. It crossed strange lands and stranger seas, and sank with Atlantis before a Minoan fisher meshed it in his net and sold it to swarthy merchants from nighted Khem. The Pharaoh Nephren-Ka built around it a temple with a windowless crypt, and did that which caused his name to be stricken from all monuments and records. Then it slept in the ruins of that evil fane which the priests and the new Pharaoh destroyed, till the delver’s spade once more brought it forth to curse mankind.

 - H.P. Lovecraft, "The Haunter of the Dark"

The Real Schlitzie brings us this recreation of the accursed Shining Trapezohedron.  For a doom-bringing alien artifact it looks pretty cool.

Happy Hobbits

Photographer Cajsa Li brings us this teaser for the "Rosamunda's Testament" LARP.  The hobbit-themed event is being held in Berghem, Sweden.  To be honest, desperate battles against the forces of evil are all well and good, but I'm at the age where doing hobbity things all weekend long sounds like a great time.

Ugo Serrano returns to our pages with this very nice prop monstrance.  It's a beautiful example of craftsmanship and an amusing meta item considering the...questionable... nature of actual monstrances.

Mythos Canopic Jars

Canopic jars were used by the ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife. They were commonly either carved from limestone or were made of pottery.- Wikipedia entry for Canopic Jars

BoneMaster brings us this collection of canopic jars, replacing the heads of the Egyptian gods with the Great Old Ones of the Mythos.

Great Cthulhu

I'm going to mark this day on my calendar.  This is one of the best Cthulhu sculpts I've ever seen, and it's made of...cardboard.  The appropriately named Taiwanese artist Cardboardnose specializes in large scale paper art, and he's really knocked it out of the park with this piece.

It Glows

Despite my senior citizen status, when it comes to things that light up I'm like a 5-year old.  Hence the little squee I gave out when I saw these glowing crystal pendants from Spanish prop creators Creadores a sueldo.

Kingsport Cthulhu

Joe Broers is one of the best Mythos artists, and he's been on an absolute tear lately.  His latest is this nicely done "Kingsport Cthulhu" idol.  It's a great sculpt, and I really like his approach to the head.
