Wonderfully original. You should cast this and sell copies online!

I've certainly thought about it. I do have a mold of this but no materials to cast them with. I have made a couple out of plaster, just to test the mold but nothing past that :/

I love this so much.

What's the deal with the multiple materials?

thanks!
 and the deal with the multiple materials is basically just cost and preference. I could have carved this from something but i don't like carving that much. so i used the paper to bulk it up, the copper mesh to wrap that with then i put sculpey on top of that. the FR4 stuff was basically to add a 1/2" to it plus add some weight. I have all those thing just laying around so why not use them. :/

A truly remarkable idol with a distinctly different style.  Please let me know if you intend to make copies available for purchase.

And you should be proud. It turned out great! I imagine you did a lot of sketches and rough sculpts beforehand....?

Not gonna lie, I REALLY thought it was a phallus when I saw the thumbnail...I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't.

HA! yeah i've heard that a lot. especially when i brought it to work to cast it. it was even more awkward trying to explain who/what cthulhu is.

It looks like an effigy the K'n-yan from 'The Mound' would have built for 'Tulu.  Very nice.
