Did you know the word "octopus" comes from a Greek work "októpus" meaning "eight foot"? And did you know that octopuses are pretty smart, compared to other invertebrates? We're admiring Kevin Chapman's octopus, carved of a gorgeous, lighter blue specimen of turquoise with lovely matrix. It peers out of sweet red coral eyes and has tentacle detailing even on the underside. About 2 5/8" long, 1 3/4" tall and 1 7/8" deep.
