Cthulhu Idol by JasonMcKittrick Cthulhu Idol by JasonMcKittrick
“Among the many strange and curious artifacts in the personal collection of Dr. James Killian this small idol is possibly the most enigmatic and peculiar. Discovered in Rome in 1830 by Killian, it appears to depict the mysterious tentacled god Cthulhu.
According to Killian’s journal the idol was unearthed among pottery shards from the 1st century A.D. and is cast in bronze, typical of ancient Roman artisans of the time. What is not typical however, is the idol’s subject. Killian had never encountered a depiction of this particular deity before and noted that it had a strange effect on certain people. Killian’s journal does not elaborate any further on this “effect” however the crate that Killian stored the idol in had the words “DANGEROUS: HANDLE WITH EXTREME CARE” stenciled on the side.
Modern examination and analysis on the idol have produced inconclusive results.”
