Imagine an octopus climbs to the top of an old pier pilling at high tide and ambushes a fish.
That’s the premise here.
Kind of awkward to visualize, the fish is upside down in the struggle, that might help.
I used a piece of firewood, tiger maple. Saved from my friends seasoned firewood stack.
Maple pier and lower stick. Leopard wood for the big insert with rosewood and purple heart inserts for accents.
My main inspiration for this came from watching a nature film at sometime. I just remember being fascinated at the octopuses killing ability. Amazing.
Then, MichaelA, did that cool sculpture of his and fanned the flames on this idea. Thanks Michael!
Very comfortable to hold. The weather is cloudy and rainy but finished this today and wanted to post. So, will get some good sunshine pictures later, if you want.
Sorry Rivergirl, still no penguin…..............
