H.P. Lovecraft - Mound Builder Cthulhu



Mound Builder Cthulhu - H.P. Lovecraft
Catalogued as #1117 - “Mound Builder Cthulhu” in the collection of Sir Albert Arnold Mill. Mill acquired the figure in 1933 from an amateur archeologist from Saint Louis who had uncovered it on a construction site west of the Cahokia Mounds area in Illinois in 1926. The figure is similar in material and craftsmanship to others found in the area and dated to the Mississippian Culture around 1400. The figure is a 3 1/2 inches tall and clearly depicts ‘Cthulhu’, namesake of the ‘Cthulhu Mythos’, providing additional evidence to the theory that the Cthulhu Cult existed in Pre-Columbian North America.

Based on the creation of H.P. Lovecraft.
Sculpted with Super Sculpey. Copies are cast in resin.  They are painted to resemble an aged ceramic.

Copies of this sculpture are available for $30 plus shipping.  Contact me at for details.

Nice integration of the Cahokians and Cthulhu mythos! And a great statue too.
