Lovecraftian Thing A Day No.7: Arkham Artefact
This is an incense holder sculpted in the shape of what looks like one of Brian Lumley’s Cthonians. I purchased it in the early 2000s (if memory serves me well) at Arkham – a now-defunct emporium of the weird located in Brighton, UK. There was a Dave Carson exhibition being held at the shop when I visited – Mr. Carson was himself also present so I had the opportunity of a quick chat; as I recall, there was also one of his unique shoggoth sculptures on display in the shop window – I wasn't able to afford it at the time, but managed to acquire it a few years later.
