About the Sculpture
This octopus sculpture, hand carved from birch plywood, shows how beautiful plywood sculptures can be if the the right subject is chosen and the material is handled in the correct way. It captures the essence of an octopus as it glides over and away from the plinth it is mounted on.
The sculpture shown here has been sold, but it can be commissioned. The price will depend on a variety of factors including the size of the carving along with the style and material of the plinth, etc. Please feel free to contact us to discuss a commission.

“When I used to work with dolphins, I was also charged with looking after the aquarium section in which we had some large tanks containing local fish species. One of the most popular residents was a curled octopus. Absolutely fascinating; I would spend hours watching this amazing cephalopod stalking and attacking crabs and was mesmerised by the way it would move”.
