This photo was taken in the Sculpture Garden in the grounds of the National Gallery of Australia. The pond sits beside the alfresco restaurant.
Sculpted by the Indonesian Dadang Christanto in 2007, “Heads from the North” commemorates mass killings in Indonesia following an unsuccessful coup in 1966.
Yet I wonder at the source of the inspiration for this disturbing work.
H.P. Lovecraft wrote of the disturbing influences upon artists in word and form and sound.
“It was from the artists and poets that the pertinent answers came, and I know that panic would have broken loose had they been able to compare notes. A large proportion of them had dreamed very bizarre things . . . . . and some of the dreamers confessed acute fear of the gigantic nameless thing visible toward the last.”
So are these heads sinking or rising. And were the original dream heads of the acolytes of the R’lyeh faith or were they the more sinister Shoggoths of unbelievable age and rumoured myth.
All I know is that, as I ate my truffled egg and asparagus entree, there was a disturbed atmosphere around the restaurant as the mist drifted across and I felt vulnerable without the protection of walls.

At last, the conjunction of the dark and the darker stars.
Cthulhu deals with that Bieber kid.
To the relief of eardrums everywhere.
