Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.256: A Little Cthulhu Idol from Arkham

This is another little Cthulhu idol which I picked up many years ago from the long-lamented Arkham - an emporium which, back in the late 1990s, was hidden away in the backstreets of Brighton (for non-UK readers, a well-known seaside resort on the South coast of the UK), and was a repository of all things strange and Lovecraftian. I have no idea as to why Arkham closed its doors - although I presume that it ultimately became the victim (as did many of the specialist UK bookshops in the late 1990s/early 2000s) of the then-incipient online marketplace.
