mystery man


I’m enjoying these symbolic animal paintings…the map under mister octopus here is of Oceanica, including Japan, Hawaii, Australia and other islands and ocean. Seemed appropriate to put an enormous octopus over it all. This summer I bought an octopus necklace and so, had already done a little research on its symbolic meaning…before I put it on, sorta wanted to know what the animal stood for, just in case there was some odd hidden meaning and I was woefully out of the loop….. but, I love the idea of mystery and wonder.

“As a creature of the water the octopus holds animal symbolism pertaining to:
Purity
Psyche
Motion
Emotion
Fluidity
Intuition
Creativity
Flexibility

and paticular symbolism of the octopus….

Complexity
Diversity
Variability
Intelligence
Insight
Vision
Mystery
Illusion

it’s also a symbol of protection and good luck….he’s got alot going on, huh. He’ll be listed on my etsy site ( to the right ) soon.

  1. This made me think of Bush’s effect on the world over the past eight years. The way he managed to cause so much havoc in so many places. This wouldn’t be possible with a normal two-armed man, but the Bush tentacles made it seem so easy.
