CORRODED BRONZE CTHULHU AMULET - INNSMOUTH ORIGINS by mortonskull CORRODED BRONZE CTHULHU AMULET - INNSMOUTH ORIGINS by mortonskull
This once magnificent amulet was found at the bottom of the Atlantic along with the remains of the wreck of THE PULPO ORO, a Spanish frigate that sunk off the coast of Brazil in the 1940s and was discovered in 2008.

THE PULPO ORO is rather well known for its connections to the ill-fated town of Innsmouth. It has been well documented that the largest known collection of Innsmouth Gold was found amidst the debris of the vessel.

Rumors suggest the possibility that THE PULPO ORO was transporting gold and other artifacts back and forth from numerous ports along the East Coast, down to an unknown town in Brazil, possibly to a previously unknown establishment of Deep Ones. It was apparently in the midst of transporting a large sum of gold and a small collection of materials when it sunk for unknown reasons.

Scholars believe this large and rather heavy Cthulhu amulet or talisman, is to have belonged to a high-priest of a sect of the Esoteric Order of Dagon. A simple, albeit weathered and tattered cord was found along with the amulet and is believed to have been worn around the neck. However, given its extremely large size, other believe it to have been used in ceremonies as a sacrificial dagger. However, its connections to Innsmouth and its age are purely conjecture as no hard evidence or proof has been brought to light concerning this amulet, other than its connection to THE PULPO ORO.

It has been submerged in the cold waters of the Atlantic for almost 80 years and nature has taken its toll corroding the fine metal work to a point of no return.
