Lovecraftian Thing A Day No.71: H.P. Lovecraft Silhouette Ornament

This is an ornamental piece produced by Arkham Studios as part of their Kickstarter to create a full sized bust of Lovecraft, which was unveiled at the Providence Athenaeum during NecronomiCon 2013. Notably, the item incorporates a version of the silhouette for which Lovecraft sat during March 1925. It is both apposite and an irony that the original silhouette - one of the more famous and enduring artistic representations of Lovecraft - was, in fact, produced by an African-American artist by the name of Perry.
