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.

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.

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.

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.
