The Yonaguni Venus:
This Jade artifact was found by seismologists after the May 4th Earthquake of 1998, on Yonaguni Island in Japan. A previously unknown cave shrine was discovered on the south western coast of the island. Scientists surveying damage from the quake noticed a dark crack in a rock surface facing the sea. The crack was not in the stone, but in a large ceramic door which had been hand molded and fired in place to seal the cave entrance. Badly eroded , finger drawn, writing covered the seal, but could not be deciphered. Archaeologists were called, and the site investigated. The team discovered a small natural cave which dead ended into an alcove. The walls of the cave and alcove were covered with unspeakable, primitive, paintings of unnatural couplings between humans and sea monsters. The only artifacts to be found were the statuette known as the Yonaguni Venus, and the carved ammonite pedestal it rested on.

Solid Cast Resin 3.5inch x 8.5inch

This piece is the first of a series inspired by tales of the Lovecraft Mythos. There will be a limited number for sale at the NecronomiCon this August in Providence RI.

Whatever is left of my shattered soul, I would willingly trade for one of these!  Oh!  If only I had seen this sooner!  I would have gone to NecronomiCon for no other reason than to purchase one of these!!!

Venus of Willendorf for the Lovecraft set -- yeesh.

A little hard for me to tell at my angle, but is she wearing a featureless mask? Just asking -- don't take it off...

She has a very minimal mask. And yes, don't take it off😉

Couldn't make it to the convention in RI. I know someone who really wants to buy one of these statues. I'm really interested on getting my hands on a few of these items as well, please would you set up an online shop?

The Convention was a wonderful success. Due to that I will surely be developing an online presence to sell the Lovecraft items. Look for The Rumtucket Trading Company in a month or so. Thanks!
