Stop-motion puppet made for a project based on a poem by Frank Belknap Long about his monstrous creation, also known as The Horror From the Hills. Tried to give this the blacklight-poster-from-the-1970's-look.

When Chaugnar wakes, its mindless hate
Will send it voyaging far;
It may set Sirius adrift,
Or seek a humbler star.
A humbler star with satellites,
Small planets in its train:
And that is why I kneel and kneel
Before Great Chaugnar's fane.

Chaugnar Faugn has slowly become one of my favourite mythos-monstrosities, mainly because of his appearance. I really like the way he feels like a warped version of Ganesha. :)

He does make you think about Indian (and other) animal-human hybrid deities. But the cool thing is the we misinterpret his appearance; he doesn't have elephantine features, it just seems that way.

Chaugnar Faugn doesn't look like an elephant, elephants look like Chaugnar Faugn. Because they're descended from him.

Hey, if you can have Deep Ones mating with crocodiles and dolphins, anything is possible in a Mythos story!

I'm afraid I'm quite conservative in my sexual leanings, so anything springing from my loins will most certainly look like me.

Well, it's very, very short, but I hope you'll enjoy it nonetheless.

So am I! I've been knocked out by the intense heat wave that's been smothering Sweden for over a month now, so I haven't been able to do much progress.

Intense heat wave? In Sweden? Ha! Try just to breath with 42 Celsius, or to sleep with 29, like in here! Go back to work, man! (just kidding ;) )

This seems like an monstrous version of that elephant man that Indians worship.

Yes, it's like an evil Ganesha.

Long might have had Ganesha in mind when he created Chaugnar.

I wouldn't be surprised.

Now that sculpture/puppet is ever loving great! Clap  Here Chaugnar is elephantine, yet totally alien as a lovecraftain entity should be. :D (Big Grin)
