Here's an interesting change of pace. Dancer Sony Voodoo shares these snapshots from a performance of her Innsmouth inspired Deep One ritual dance. It's a disturbing mixture of creepy and sexy, which no doubt helps explain why the Deep Ones had such a friendly relationship with certain coastal enclaves.

Copper Centipede returns to our pages with this nicely done idol of Shub-Niggurath, The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young. I own one of his earlier castings with a weathered stone finish and it looks like it just came out of the ground.

Polish artist Sebastian Jarmołowicz brings us a recreation of the pre-Christian idol posts found across Slavic Europe. Personally, I've been a lot more interested in Slavic mythology and history since I was exposed to the Witcher books and video games. It's too bad schools don't give the folklore of eastern Europe as much attention as the Norse and Greco-Roman pantheons.

We've featured an increasing number of Cthulhu idols that were sculpted digitally and then 3D printed. Unfortunately, many of them take a serious quality hit because of the layering effect produced as the molten filament builds up the physical model. This very nice design from Dürum & Bass handily dodges that problem. I really like how the facial tentacles taper down to fine, curving tendrils.
