From the artist’s description: "This is a 24" octopus arm cast in urethane. Polished and painted, protruding from a 9" round rust encrusted porthole, with a slosh of rigid seawater. Extends from the wall 18 1/2". I cast these from my own molds made from my original sculpt. No animals were harmed in the process, save the usual cuts and scrapes to my poor, gnarled fingers."
