Well that was easy and not the least bit dangerous. This was created by toy maker Doktor A and took nearly 2 years to finish. His inspiration was from the 1972 film The Asphyx.

The Asphyx appears in Greek myths as an angel of death like deity who appears at the moment of demise to seek release from it’s eternal pain by possessing the dying soul of its victim. This piece is directly drawing on the iteration of the Asphyx as seen in the 1972 British horror film starring Robert Stephens and Robert Powell and imagines what may have come to pass with the success of Sir Hugo Cunningham’s experiments in trapping an Asphyx, if the events of the film had not taken such a terrible turn for the worst.

This guy is a toy maker, where were these toys when I was growing up? My parents messed up, I never had anything nearly this cool.
