Does anyone know if this picture is from a different take on HG Wells' The Time Machine?

Or is it part of some later Pulp or SF concept art?

Thanks,

Dan

Not criticizing, just curious: Why the 15mm cross-post?

Why the 15mm crosspost?

Lol. Because if I ever sculpt one that's the size it will be. They really remind me a lot of the Dover Demon*.

Dan, the text says it's an illustration from Wells' "First Men in the Moon" (1901). An art expert I'm not, but it feels like early 20th Century work to me.

Robert: "Dan, the text says it's an illustration from Wells' "First Men in the Moon" (1901)"

I don't think they put the right info in the caption. Maybe something else by Wells. I'll keep looking.

Hi, it's taken from "Man of the year million", written by Wells in 1893:

Excuse me while I go wash the egg off my face. Thank you, noggin.

Wow, that's it! Strangely accurate, specially for something written that long ago (1893), wouldn't you say?
