About

Limited Edition bust of Cthulhu available only on Kickstarter. There are basically two finish options, the bronze plated resin bust and the bronze bust.

Designed by acclaimed digital artists, Guillem H. Pongiluppi and Joseph Diaz, that specialize in illustrating the twisted world created by the mind of H. P. Lovecraft and sculpted by the talented and experienced artist Mar H. Pongiluppi.

 The Bronze plated resin Bust:

  • Price: 250€ + Shipping.
  • Size: 9,65" / 24,5cm.
  • Weight: 3,5 Kg / 7.7 pounds
  • Material: Bronze plated resin.

The Bronze Bust: 

  • Price: 850€ + Shipping.
  • Size: 9,65" / 24,5cm.
  • Weight: 7 Kg / 15.4 pounds
  • Material: Bronze.

The process of developing the Bust of Cthulhu was a creative work of three artists to create a piece of high quality art.

The first step was the production of multiple sketches and concepts to specify the look that Cthulhu should have.

The second step, once the look was defined, was to pass the designs to Mar H. Pongiluppi. She made the bust with a special plasticine for modeling. It took several weeks of hard work and several design corrections to achieve the final result.

The third step was to take the piece to the smelter.

First a silicone mold was made for the subsequent casting process with the hot wax technique. 

Once the piece is fused, each piece is worked manually to polish it. And finally the color is applied to the patina, a process that can last several days.

And finally we got this magnificent and heavy piece of art ready.
