    About this Artwork

    Hastur (The Unspeakable One, Him Who Is Not to be Named, Assatur, Xastur, or Kaiwan) is a being usually referred to as part of the Cthulhu Mythos. Hastur first appeared in Ambrose Bierce's short story "Haïta the Shepherd" (1893) as a benign god of shepherds. Robert W. Chambers later used Hastur in his own stories to represent both a person and a place (Carcosa) relating to the Hyades and the star of Aldebaran. Hastur is perhaps one of the most confusing Mythos entities, which is fitting for a being associated with chaos and decadence. Some writers say that it is a tentacled being trapped on a planet near the star Aldebaran. Others associate it with the King in Yellow, and the mystical backdrop of that infamous play. Still others go so far as to claim that it is the cosmic force of entropy, slowly grinding away all shred of order from the universe. It is impossible to tell from a human perspective which of these are true. 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.
