Another epic collab between House of Gog and Skinner. This is the first small scale original art statuette from the amazing art of Skinner. Hand crafted & hand-painted by master statue craftsmen, from deep space and ancient slumbers directly to your display. The statuette features a removable & displayable “two-faced” helmet: synthetic god & biomorphic deity, two-face/two-sided removable helmet! Flip the helmet or remove it to change the look of the statuette. Comes also with a small high quality art print hand-signed by Skinner (9.5 x 7 inches). And of course a certificate of authenticity signed by House of Gog founders.
The men found the relic within the monolithic sarcophagus of Jupiter. They had been trapped for days now, the storm outside having destroyed their ship, leaving them stranded. It was lucky that their space suits had kept them alive this long, but the oxygen wouldn’t last another day….
They came in response to a bizarre and consistent distress signal…odd chattering…voices maybe? Some kind of multi layered recording that had the distinct human vocal timbre that was enough to instigate a rescue mission.
Rations were low and the chances of the space men getting rescued was nigh impossible considering the massive permanent storm that Jupiter is known for. After some discussion they chose to explore the vast labyrinthine catacombs they were trapped in. Every chamber was empty besides the massive tombs and bizarre sculptures that lined the walls of the place like hideous columns clawing at the sky. Strange engravings and a millennia of dust was barely visible to the men through their space visored helmets. All was quiet ancient death here.
When they found the relic, it was alone, squatting in the center of the darkness. The impossible oddness of it bothered the men, but they were on borrowed time, so their curiosity won the day. The closer they got to it, the better they could see its intricate, alien head, its weird robotic impressions and vibrant neon shapes. The thing was opulent in its absurdity.
One of the men grabbed the relic and slowly lifted the helmet from the thing’s crouching, withered body to reveal a tiny grinning skull that watched the men with a look of hysterical hatred. Wherever the men moved, its eyes followed them, and they began to hear a kind of quiet synthesized laughing in the back of their minds. A noisy robotic howling that got louder and louder in a distorted wave of static screams that drove the men mad. It was the howling static signal that brought them here!! Desperate to stifle the noise, they frantically put the helmet back on the thing and set it down! Relief! The sickening noise stopped, but the men now noticed the latches on the outside of their space helmets coming undone..Some invisible hand was now removing THEIR helmets! Once again the immense alien laughter came, and the men’s own screams were absorbed into the cacophony of it, as they tried to run away. They barely got 5 feet away when their visors are unceremoniously yanked away exposing their maniacal human heads to Jupiter’s gravity.
The relic had now added the men’s voices to its own. Absorbed into its tiny, terrible body.
All was quiet ancient death again, as the floating dust of the tomb fell like silent snow upon the gore of the space men’s imploded skulls.Skinner
