H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘Dagon’

Idol such as those the ‘Esoteric Order of Dagon’ might worship.

From H.P. Lovecraft’s A Shadow Over Innsmouth -
All in the band of the faithful - Order 0' Dagon - an' the children shud never die, but go back to the Mother Hydra an' Father Dagon what we all come from onct ... Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn! Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah-nagl fhtaga - "

My original is made from Super Sculpy and painted to resemble brass with verde-gris. It’s about 8 ¾” tall. Copies are cast in resin and painted identically to the original.

Copies of this sculpture are available for $65    plus shipping.  Contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com for details.

Is this item still available for sale? It would be a really cool prop for one of my Call of Cthulhu rpg campaigns!

Why not just make a wax cast and then cast it in bronze? Looks fabulous by the way.

This looks like such a believable artifact! The form of the throne is especially well designed, and the asymmetry of the sculpt really makes it look like a genuine and expertly hand forged statue... Reminds me very much of brass statues from India.

Really inspiring work!

Thanks. Hmm, I have some statuary from India here, and am sure that has influened me. You're own sculpts are great. I've long wanted to work in wood and stone but haven't found the time.

Any chance you will sculpt Mother Hydra to accompany this Dagon piece? :)

Oh, additional on this sculpture. This is one of those fine occasions when the product looks better in person than in photographs, and those a great to start with.

I just received my Dagon today, and I'm impressed! Every time I look at it, I notice something new. The Cthulhu image on the throne's back makes me feel like I have more than one sculpture. Now all I have to do is figure out the best way to display it.

Thanks! Glad he finally arrived. A comment below suggests a mirror. I was happy that he has 360 degrees of something to look at.
scorpionlover42's avatar
You're certainly welcome. The medallions were a pleasant surprise, too I had forgotten that you had planned to include them. Yes, a mirror sounds like a good idea. Thanks.
