Clark Ashton Smith's Sorcerer Eibon by zombiequadrille
Clark Ashton Smith's Sorcerer Eibon

 Eibon is the creation of Clark Ashton Smith and was introduced in his store “The Door to Saturn”.  Eibon is a sorcerer and priest of Tsathoggua, and is the writer of the Book of Eibon, a biography of his life, his magic formulae and the rights of Tsathoggua.  He resided on the continent of Hyperborea before it was swallowed by ice.

 My sculpture of Eibon depicts him holding a scroll of his writings to become the Book of Eibon, while his right hand rests on his bronze sword.  The sculpture is made from super sculpey and painted.  I will make copies of this figure from resin in two versions; one as shown, a dark metal with green verdegris, and another with an aged ivory finish.

The figure is 8 ½ inches tall

Piltdown Cthulhu by zombiequadrille
Piltdown Cthulhu

PILTDOWN CTHULHU

Initially declared a great ‘archeological discovery’ the Piltdown Man, ‘found’ in 1912 in East Sussex County, England, turned out to be one of the greatest scientific hoaxes in history. Proclaimed to be the long anticipated ‘Missing Link’, it was ultimately revealed to be nothing more than a clever mixing of human and orangutan skull and jaw pieces.  Ironically, a real discovery, made in the same area only months later, was that of what is now known as the ‘Piltdown Cthulhu’. This small stone figurine, was unearthed by a laborer, James Simmons, at the gravel pits not far from where the ‘Piltdown Man’ had allegedly been discovered.  While the Piltdown Man hoax was sustained for over forty years, poor Mr. Simmons’ discovery was dismissed almost immediately as a fraud, considered to have been perpetrated by him in an attempt to cash in on then rampant ‘Piltdown mania’. Fortunately, a newspaper account published at the time eventually came to the attention of Sir Albert Arnold Mill, archeologist and authority on the Great Old Ones, and on Cthulhu, in particular. Mill met with Simmons, who had fortunately retained possession of the artifact, and established the authenticity of the man’s find. 

Mill has written that the little stone figurine, which Simmons claimed to have found buried next to a small crude stone monolith, is a true Iron Age relic. Having been carved from solid granite in the style of the well-known ‘Baba’ statues found from Ireland to Asia, though much smaller, this figure represents Cthulhu, primary figure in the so called ‘Cthulhu Mythos’.  While many idols of Cthulhu have been found worldwide, with the design and materials defined by local cultures, with few exceptions the size of these figures seldom exceeds one foot, and they are often no more than two or three inches tall.  We can account for this phenomenon by considering that the ‘Cult of Cthulhu’ has been suppressed and persecuted since the earliest accounts of it appear in Sumerian scripts, over 5000 years old.  The constant threat of annihilation forced devoted adherents to create portable objects of worship and in most instances, save for certain isolated populations, to adopt a nomadic life style.

Piltdown Cthulhu is available for sale. The figure is 4 ½  inches tall and will be  finished as shown in the pictures.  They are $30.00 in the U.S. plus $7.00 postage.  Please contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com for purchases.

I'm an avid fan of H.P. Lovecraft, the Lovecraft Circle, and new stories about the Cthulhu Mythos. I enjoy creating things relating to this genre and enough interest was shown by others that I decided to make and sell a few of each. My sculpture originals are made from plastiline clay, Super Sculpey, or Monster Clay. Silicone molds are then made and copies of figures are made in resin and painted. When possible I create fictional documentation to support the 'authenticity' of my relics.

For further information please feel free to contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com

Also, several of my sculptures are available through the Lovecraft Ezine lovecraftzine.com/.

Thanks, Paul.  Hey, the other day I was looking at my copy of "Shadows Over Main Street" and when I saw your piece I thought 'that could easily be Paul Carrick's.' It was.  Since then I saw it on this site.  Very nice.

Heh! :)  Someone was recently telling me how they could identify my work, kind of like being able to recognize a guitarist's sound.  I hadn't actually though much about it, I guess because I'd never striven for a specific look.  Maybe in some ways I am just too close to my own work to see it so much, but if I think about there are certain ways I tend to approach an image, color and lighting, etc.

Thanks! :)

There was a time in the early 90's when 90% of all the books in the SF&F and Horror had real painted covers. I would go into a bookstore and identify almost all of the cover artists by their style, which just seemed to 'sink in' after a time.  Most of the books now have digital art on them and the styles aren't as distinctive.  Yours still is.  Maybe it's shadow, contrast, and  viewer perspective for you. It works for me!
