Tcho-Tcho Tribal Elder

The Tcho-Tcho are first mentioned in August Derleth's 1933 short story "The Thing That Walked on the Wind", in which a character refers in passing to "the forbidden and accursed designs of the Tcho-Tcho people of Burma". Later that year, in "Lair of the Star-Spawn", co-written with Mark Shorer, Derleth expanded on the Tcho-Tcho, describing them as a short, hairless people that worship Lloigor and Zhar.

In H. P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Out of Time" (1936), they are described as "abominable". In Lovecraft's ghost written "The Horror in the Museum," John Rogers claims that he had visited a ruined city in Indo-China where the Tcho-Tchos once lived.               – text from Wikipedia

The Tcho-Tcho make appearances in other ‘Mythos’ stories and are frequent characters in ‘Mythos’ related games.

They also figure in BLACK MAN WITH A HORN. A missionary flees Indo-China, but the Tcho-tcho are after him. He suffers a horrible death. The same demon,the Shugoron is now after the man who befriended him in his attempt to escape the Tcho-tcho.

Thanks.  I hadn't seen any Tcho-Tcho sculpts done, except for some miniatures so I thought I'd have a go at one.  Hmm, amphibian; well who knows what interactions these folks had with deep ones.....

You're welcome! Everything I've read about them suggests they are not 100 percent human. And I think this is the first Tcho-Tcho sculpt I've ever seen.
This is great! This guy definitely has an attitude. Clap Human, but not quite human. Maybe it's me, but I see something vaguely amphibian about this chap.
