Artwork Description

This baj-relief sculpture is my portrayal of a shoggoth. I wanted to incorporate the sculpture into the frame, as if the frame were part of the amorphous creature itself, and thus make a baj-relief that could be hung without any further treatment. Sculpted in wax, cast in mixed media (resin, hydrostone).

Cool!! Very archeological in a
"Lovecraftian" sort of way....
Nice textures.

Thanks for helping me out there! I really appreciate it.
It's just that I heard of this thing called a Shoggoth in this computer game this friend had called Daikatana. Thanks!

Thanks, Pierre. Ion, a shoggoth is a creature from the works of author H.P. Lovecraft. It is basically a bioengineered servant race created millions of years ago by another ancient race of beings. The shoggoths eventually turned on and destroyed their creators. The interesting thing about shoggoths is that they are amorphous entities without a distinct physical form- they can spontaneously form or absorb eyes, mouths, appendages or whatever e

Could you enlighten me on what exactly a Shoggoth is?

Again, a very convincing Shoggoth. Smile Amorphous as it should be !

Art at its best.
