Idol of Tsathoggua
“He was very squat and pot-bellied, his head was more like a monstrous toad than a deity, and his whole body was covered with an imitation of short fur, giving somehow a vague sensation of both the bat and the sloth. His sleepy lids were half-lowered over his globular eyes; and the tip of a queer tongue issued from his fat mouth.” The Tale of Satampra Zeiros, Clark Ashton Smith
A recreation of the malign toad-deity idol described by Clark Ashton Smith in his Hyperborean short story, The Tale of Satampra Zeiros from 1931. Tsathoggua, dwells deep within the earth in the red-litten world of N’kai, slothfully awaiting sacrifice from his primordial cult.
