“That is not dead which can eternal lie, yet with stranger aeons, even Death may die.”

Cthulhu is a fictional cosmic entity created by horror author H. P. Lovecraft in 1926. The first appearance of the entity was in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu" published in Weird Tales in 1928.

One cultist, known as Old Castro, provides the most elaborate information given in Lovecraft's fiction about Cthulhu. The Great Old Ones, according to Castro, had come from the stars to rule the world in ages past.

Castro points to a "much-discussed couplet" from Abdul Alhazred's Necronomicon:

That is not dead which can eternal lie.

And with strange aeons even death may die.

Morbid but creative. I think the skull would look more dramatic if the light from the eyes was less strong and less blinding to the viewer.
