The Cthulhu Tiki Mug Honors H.P. Lovecraft's Cult Classic Short Story

Fans of H.P. Lovecraft's stories will surely want to get their hands on the Cthulhu Tiki Mug before supplies run out. The handcrafted design is created by Jonathan "Atari" Chaffin and sculpted by Kristina Lucas Francis.

The piece's official title, 'The Horror in Clay Cthulhu tiki mug,' comes from a chapter in Lovecraft's cult classic short story 'The Call of Cthulhu' where in which the discovery of a clay idol leads to the awakening of a primordial god.

The emerald green of the sculpted mug endows with a antiquated and mystical allure, almost as if the piece itself were an ancient idol. The mug is available through the project's Kickstarter page. Those who donate more than 40 dollars will receive Lovecraft memorabilia such as coasters, t-shirts, pin-ups and more -- a great way to honor the tentacled god.
