Diary day 23
After finding the strange misshapen idol on that newly risen volcanic island (I am still at a loss to explain why it was there) my attempts to find out more about it are begining to bear fruit.
I have included a photograph so that you see it's hideousness for yourself though I have my doubts about making such images available to an unsuspecting public. I have also found a drawing in an a rare copy of John Dee's translation of the Necronomicon which bares a similarity to the statue, I include a copy of the drawing here so you can make your own comparisons.
I will admit to being somewhat mystified as to how a statue found on the Atlantic seaboard can have any connection with an old Persian text. To compound the mystery I have also found a drawing in an old Welsh text the "Llyfr Ddu Gwawl" or "Black book of Gwawl" it is supposedly a drawing of the demon god Cyddlw of the Hyperborean picts. The similarities are too great to be mere coincidence.
It was next to a strange verse which translated reads:
"In his house at Rl'yeh dead Cthulhu lies sleeping
That is not dead which can eternal lie and with strange aeons even death may die. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wagn'nagl fhtagn."
The more I find out about this thing the more I am inclined to re-visit the island to see if I can pick up any further clues. I am also trying my hand at modern technology to see if I can find out why this monstrous statue haunts my dreams so.
Here is a list of what I have found so far:
This I found astounding this man creates and sells these accursed idols how long his sanity can last I do not know. His workshop can be foundhere
Someone has collected a tome of hymns to this thing they can be found here
