Cthulhu Icon Painting

A friend of mine painted this Cthulhu icon about 20 years ago and I used it in a video a while back (see previous post). The image size is about 8 X 10 inches and is reverse glass painted in an antique frame with convex glass which gives it a feeling of depth. The reflected light in convex glass made a halo. Both squid-like and vaguely insectoid at the same time, clutching what might be a wreath. The Cthulhu ikon appears near the end of the video Dr. Tarr & Prof. Fether Blinded Me With Science -- Thomas Dolby vs Alan Parsons.
