Octopus Monday: the tripartite octopus

There is not one single room in your house where it would be inappropriate to hang this octopus triptich.

Lord Bodner Octopus Triptych

Lord Bodner Octopus Triptych

The design is taken from an original copperplate engraving by Lord Bodner, published in 1826 in London as part of a series studying creatures of the deep.

You can purchase it from Natural Curiosities if you are so inclined.

As an aside, ‘creatures of the deep’ is a criminally underused phrase these days.
