HP Lovecraft's Leng

Leng, to me, in some ways represents Lovecraft's version of the Land of Shadow of Tolkien's Middle Earth; a much feared and mysterious realm of complete desolation. 

This is basically a scene from The Dream-quest of Unknown Kadath, as Randolph Carter is spirited to see the dreaded, "high-priest not to be described." 

The creatures dancing around fires are the almost-human beings of Leng, that worship the amorphous Moon-Beasts as gods and battle the bloated purple spiders of the neighboring vales.
