      About this Artwork

      Wendigo. 1) Title of the Great Old One Ithaqua. In one reference, the Wen-digo is referred to as Ithaqua's cousin. 2) Hypothetical species of which Ithaqua is a member. It is believed that by mating with humans, a wendigo can beget others of its own kind. Two wendigos were once sighted together, but the creatures engaged in a tremendous battle that ended only when one of the combatants perished. The existence of other such beings may explain the reference in which the Wendigo who controls the shantaks is called the "cousin" of Ithaqua. 3) Transformed servitor race created by Ithaqua out of those he captures. These appear much like Ithaqua himself, but are of lesser size and power. (The Wendigo comes from the tales of the Cree and Ojibwa of the Great Lakes region, who call the spirit the witiko or windigo. These monsters are human-like spirits who are taller than the mightiest trees and live at the North Pole, coming south to catch and devour humans. According to legend, when two Wendigos meet, they join in a titanic battle that ends in the destruction of one or both of the monsters. The myths also say that the Wendigo sometimes touches the mind of a human. Such people usually become obsessed with cannibalism, becoming so dangerous to their family and neighbors that they are often slain by their tribe.) The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, devils, angels, monsters and feye folk, creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
