Star Spawn of Cthulhu by Eclectixx Star Spawn of Cthulhu by Eclectixx
This is not Cthulhu himself, but a representation of one of his kindred. Sometimes referred to as "Star Spawn," they are more or less described as an octopus-like race which descended from the stars.

"Another race - a land race of beings shaped like octopi and probably corresponding to fabulous prehuman spawn of Cthulhu - soon began filtering down from cosmic infinity and precipitated a -monstrous war which for a time drove the Old Ones wholly back to the sea..."
-H.P. Lovecraft, At the Mountains Of Madness

Great star-spawn. I like the original interpretation with the legs. It has a cool, almost insectoid look to it.
