The Music of Erich Zann

From sculptor Joe Broers, who brought us Cthulhu as drawn by H.P. Lovecraft, comes The Music of Erich Zann.

This is the title character playing his cello while fearfully glancing at the window.  His frantic playing isn’t going to do him any good…

Joe says, “The figure is 7 1/2″ tall. I’ve cast copies of this figure in resin, his bow is made from basswood.  They’re painted the same as in the photo, but since they’re hand painted there is some variation.”

Erich Zann is $79.  Postage is $11.35 if you are in the United States.  If you are not, then international postage is $25 for First Class or $40 for Priority.

  1. I want all these sculptures but I swore to myself I would not get into Cthulhu knick-knacks, and my wife would hate them, but you, sir, are making this very difficult!

  2. The story actually says ‘viol’, which is what I attempted to sculpt, but I wonder if people didn’t just read ‘viol’ as violin? The illustration for the first Weird Tales publication of the story in 1925 got it right, but looking around it seems that almost no one else did after that.

  3. “Viol” can refer to a family of instruments – another of HPL’s archaisms. I first read this story when I was 11 and I am now almost 70. This sculpture is just as I have always pictured the subject.
