Kandarian Dagger

An ancient Kandarian dagger for Darkside Media http://darksidemedia.us/ for an upcoming cinematic trailer.
The dagger is 44k triangles. The central bit is roughly a symbolization of part of the story of Innsmouth (from The Shadow over Innsmouth by H.P. Lovecraft). The metamorphosis and interbreeding between the Deep Ones and the local townsfolk. The dagger itself needed to be very ancient, bronze and ritualistic in nature. It was designed by Dave Kann and myself.
