Octopus

Fascinating octopus, a strange creature unlike any other. Not only does it have three hearts and blue blood, but also more than one brain. A small doughnut shaped central one and mini brains, neurons, along its tentacles controlling each arm individually. With no skeleton, it can squeeze itself into the smallest spaces and is renowned as something of an escape artist.

The octopus is associated with many a myth and legend. Whilst in the Western world it is associated with the Kraken, a fearsome sea monster, in South America and Polynesian culture it is revered as a divine protector and spiritual guide.

In Western art the octopus represents mystery, flexibility, fluidity, intelligence, adaptability, and unpredictability.

My handmade one-of-a-kind collectible Octopi are made with a selection of beads and wire and can either be sat on a surface or hung as a sun catcher.
