Father Boyle

This is a priest who worships and evil god. I created it by sculpting it in wet clay, creating a moulding using fiberglass, and then moulding it in silicone. This work is inspired by the cultists in  H P Lovecraft’s 1927 short story, the Horror at Red Hook. Lovecraft’s strange monsters, Cthulhu, Shoggoth, Ghatanothoa, and Y’golonac are often described as having devotees.  This is what I imaged they would be like. In the Cthulhu mythos, these creatures are worshipped as gods and are responsible for all kinds of horror and carnage being visited on mankind.
