Finally some one who portrays the size right :) in all most artist rendering they create an image of Cthulhu as gigantic . He's not gigantic In the story the trap door on R'lyeh that sailors let him out of is small enough for eight men to open .

well....... in the story (written by H.P. Lovecraft) he actually IS gigantic. His door opens because a mechanism has been activated and then it opened itself.

I've been seeing a lot of Cthulhu art trying to 'revolutionize' the Cthulhu look, trying to make their images look as insane and far-fetched as humanly possible. It's a refreshing break to see an image so simple and yet so powerful, that retains the horror of the subject matter without having to resort to drawing eighty-billion eye-stalks and a boat load of different colored tentacles.
