The Robert Bloch Award-The Haunter Of The Dark by Legiongp The Robert Bloch Award-The Haunter Of The Dark by Legiongp
"...On this pillar rested a metal box of peculiarly asymmetrical form; its hinged lid thrown back, and its interior holding what looked beneath the decade-deep dust to be an egg-shaped or irregularly spherical object some four inches through....As Blake grew accustomed to the feeble light he noticed odd bas-reliefs on the strange open box of yellowish metal. Approaching, he tried to clear the dust away with his hands and handkerchief, and saw that the figurings were of a monstrous and utterly alien kind; depicting entities which, though seemingly alive, resembled no known life-form ever evolved on this planet. The four-inch seeming sphere turned out to be a nearly black, red-striated polyhedron with many irregular flat surfaces; either a very remarkable crystal of some sort or an artificial object of carved and highly polished mineral matter. It did not touch the bottom of the box, but was held suspended by means of a metal band around its centre, with seven queerly-designed supports extending horizontally to angles of the box's inner wall near the top. This stone, once exposed, exerted upon Blake an almost alarming fascination. He could scarcely tear his eyes from it, and as he looked at its glistening surfaces he almost fancied it was transparent, with half-formed worlds of wonder within. Into his mind floated pictures of alien orbs with great stone towers, and other orbs with titan mountains and no mark of life, and still remoter spaces where only a stirring in vague blacknesses told of the presence of consciousness and will." ---HP Lovecraft The Haunter of the Dark

This is the sculpture I made for the newly resurrected Robert Bloch Award given to S.T. Joshi at this years NecronomiCON. The creature with the burning three lobed eye pulses red inside the black gem. It was a labor of love that I was honored to provide.

Approximately 6inches x 9 inches, Wood, Cast Resin, LEDs, Processor and 8 AA batteries. This is only available to those who win the award : )
