Echo Station muses on what he wants in a Cthulhu idol

To sum up, my ideal Cthulhu idol would have the following characteristics:

* stylized
* looms outward, or otherwise aggressively posed
* big grabby unfinished-looking wings, possibly posed asymmetrically
* spider-like eyes, but probably not too regular in numbers or symmetry
* extremities not clearly arms or flippers or whatever, but some horrible combination, and skinny rather than [body-builder] buff
* inhuman (probably covered by all of the above)
* intelligent
* menacing
