Do you or someone you know have a weak spot for octopuses? If so, this wonderfully expressive octopus shelf sculpture will make an ideal decorative feature for a self or table top. I’ve never seen anything quite like it except in the creative conditions of an Art School studio. The octopus sculpture is designed to sit astride the edge of a shelf or table in the same way an octopus would hover over clefs and ridges on the sea bed.

The octopus sculpture is made from pewter and has the expressive nature of an octopus beneath the waves. Eight tentacles curve in majestic form to give the sculpture a gait of under water movement and locational setting. If you’re looking to add a touch of ‘still’ movement to an area of a room, then this octopus shelf décor piece is perfect, especially if you have a fondness for the intelligent cephalopod.

Price: $90

Did you know?: Octopuses are considered the most intelligent of invertebrates and their analytical skills have been well documented by scientists. Not only this but due to their lack of an internal skeleton they can get into the most narrow of slits, tubes and holes. Octopuses have been known to open the lids of their aquariums, crawl out of the water and crawl along the ground to nearby tanks filled with crabs and fish, there gorging themselves silly on the inhabitants.
