INKredible fabulOCTOcy (yes, I made up my own words)

Surly, by now, we have all seen the fabulous octopus chair by Maximo Riera, no?  This Spanish artist/poet has really pushed the envelope with what he calls his "Animal Collection"... I couldn't love it more!

"The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal's natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.

Octopus Book: the Octopus Chair is the first piece of the Animal Chair collection, and it establishes a base and point of departure for the pieces to come."

It looks like a gorgeous black dress with a very long train (insert dream of wearing BIG black ball gown to an event here).  Truth be told, I love this animal and if I had room in my house, I'd definitely look to purchasing this unique piece. What do you think?

Pink and Sparkles (and a bit of black ink),
