Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.239: The Black Goat of the Woods

Today's item can be found in the studio of artist Tobias Oliver, who procured it from friend of the Ghooric Zone, Joe Broers. Ensconced in a secret location surrounded by ominously domed hills deep within the Scottish Highlands, I recently had the opportunity to visit Tobias' home and workplace. During my stay Tobias made mention of the fact that this statuette of Shub Niggurath, the Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young, has been the locus of various weird and unsettling phenomena - notably an unpleasantly fecund plague of black flies which infested his workspace - during the time that it has overseen his work on various occult artefacts and esoteric projects.

Many thanks to Tobias Oliver and Graham Liney for their hospitality during my stay at their home.
