Creatures from the Deep

Lord Bodner's Octopus Triptych via Urban Nest

I just saw this octopus from Natural Curiosities over at Urban Nest and am completely in love.  I wasn't familiar with Natural Curiosities and can't wait to really check them out.  The piece is based on the original copperplate engraving by Lord Bodner published in 1826.  Love it!  
I've gone a bit overboard with the overscale and odd pieces lately.  I don't know that Lord Bodner's octopus will be coming home with me but it really is lovely...and odd in such a wonderful way.
