ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Joe Broers makes Cthulhu Mythos sculptures, which come with "fictitious 'documentation' that helps provide a feeling of verisimilitude to the project."

WOW! AND IF YOU’RE STILL IN THE BUYER’S MOOD:WHY NOT A BUST OF LOVECRAFT HISSELF!!!!
Looks kind of sad and pensive. Even Cthulhu has a bummer day from time to time, I guess.
“fictitious documents” sound like something you’d find in a Milton-Bradley board game.
Well, it’s not Milton Bradley, but it IS a great game.
reminds me of Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama
The wings are much smaller!
When Great Cthulhu rises, will owning one of these things get me in trouble?
I’ve been very happy with mine by Stephen Hickman
It’s developed quite an evil dust layer over the years.

Cthulhu has a face full of vacuum cleaner hoses!
This Cthulhu sucks.
How is this Cthulhu different from Cthulhu’s parakeet? (Hint: it has something to do with diarrhea.)
The drawings are by Lovecraft. He must not have known
anything about Cthulhu.
That is like middle-aged accountant Cthulhu. I am not driven mad so much as compelled to organize my receipts.
this is some lovecraft magic….
Your link can go on your profile page, thanks.
For cool Mythos artifacts, check out the Propnomicon blog.
He has links to quite a few Cthulhu Idols.
I have gotten so many gift ideas from BoingBoing, and here’s another one. My beloved is sooo getting a Cthulu for Christmas.
Ha-ha. I came here to ask is just me or does it look like Cthulhu had to go potty?
His Cthulhu idol is probably the closest to HPL’s doodled design I’ve ever seen, and I will most certainly be ordering one soon–but that “Shub-Niggurath” looks like something August Derleth would’ve invented to masturbate to. The molds for that one flat-out need broken.
Mr. Broers is a wonderful artist who produces some of the finest Mythos sculptures around. The only thing that matches that craftsmanship and detail work is the effort he puts into his paper props.
