Cthulhu Statue

Hand painted in a bronze and patina finish by the sculptor, C.J. Cummings Bronzed Artist’s Proof “A monster of vaguely anthropoid outline… with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feeler… a scaly, rubbery-looking body… long, narrow wings behind… somewhat bloated corpulence… squatted evilly on a rectangular block or pedestal covered in undecipherable characters… tips of the wings touched the back edge of the block… long, curved claws of the doubled-up, crouching hind legs gripped the front edge… huge forepaws which clasped the croucher’s elevated knees… abnormally lifelike… subtly fearful…” H.P. Lovecraft In the beginning. The sculpture before finishing. Sculpted completely out of Super Sculpey. The base has inlaid glyphs of ill portent. The dialect is Cthonian, taken from various resources around the web. The pronunciation of the glyphs is: “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” The base when deciphered says: “In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” […]
