The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.79: Horrid Little Idol

Less than an inch in height, this tiny idol - depicting in carven wood some nameless horror from the Elder Time - was discovered on my doorstep earlier in the day, wrapped in a thin sheet of pale yellow tissue paper inscribed with curious symbols. Recognising the monstrous provenance of those glyphs, I quickly ensconced the horrid little idol in a dusty corner of my cabinet of curiousities - where, I hope, its baleful influence will remain bound (at least for the forseeable future) by multifarious sigils of warding and apotropaic devices of diverse kinds.
