A handcrafted recreation of Enoch Bowen's Egyptian Expedition Case from the classic H.P. Lovecraft tale, "The Haunter of the Dark". Painstakingly crafted by Mythos artist Jason McKittrick this one of a kind collection of handmade Lovecraftian props chronicles Bowen's quest to unearth the tomb of the Black Pharaoh Nephren Ka and obtain the Shining Trapezohedron. Included in the collection are:

Enoch Bowen's handmade velvet-lined wooden expedition case. Outfitted with specially made niches to hold its various contents. ( Measures 8" x 5" x 2.5")
Nyarlathotep Statuette- A small Shabti style figurine of the Crawling Chaos discovered by Bowen in the tomb of the Black Pharaoh, Nephren Ka. It is said to cause the owner to have visionary apocalyptic dreams. (Measures 6.75" x 2.5")
Mummified finger of Nephren Ka- Accidentally broken from Nephren Ka's mummy during its discovery. Kept by Bowen as a relic. ( Measures 3.5")
The Scroll of the Black Pharaoh- Discovered in the tomb of Nephren Ka. This ancient papyrus depicts the Black Pharaoh smiting the enemies of Egypt through the power of the Shining Trapezohedron. The cryptic hieroglyphic inscriptions are said to lead to the Shining Trapezohedron's hiding place.( Measures 12" x 16". Made from real Egyptian papyrus.)
Ancient Fabric Remnant- A fragmentary piece of fabric inscribed with the language of the Old Ones presumably describing the Shining Trapezohedron. It's inscriptions have yet to be deciphered. ( Measures 6.25" x 5.25")
Enoch Bowen's Expedition Journal- Containing copious notes and drawings recording Bowen's entire quest to uncover the tomb of Nephren Ka and eventually his obtaining of the Shining Trapezohedron. ( Measures 3.5" x 5.25")

Also included are antiqued photos depicting Bowen's expedition as well as arcane documents and various annotated maps of Egypt

This thing is an opus magnum. I'm not sure who I should envy more. You, or the collector.

This is all amazing! I adore the scroll of the Black Pharaoh. And it was made from REAL Egyptian papyrus?
