Octopus are cool creatures! Did you know they can change their coloring in a fraction of a second in order to camouflage themselves into their environment? They are also extremely intelligent, being seen to use tools and open bottles!
This is a larger than usual egg gourd ornament, with pyrography (burning) of an octopus on the entire gourd. Green/ blue glazes added to the burning of the water.
All of my pyrography work is done by hand with no patterns or shortcuts!
This egg gourd measures about 4" tall. Hand in photo gives you a better idea of the size.
Some ornaments will rattle when you shake them, that is the loose seeds inside you are hearing.
Be sure to see the photo of an egg gourd growing in the garden before it is dried for artistic use.
Please display away from direct sunlight, as this will cause the artwork to fade. A UV protection coating is applied, but it has it limitations. Treat this little ornament as a miniature piece of original art, because that is what it is!
Comes with a handmade hook ready for hanging, and packaged in a gift box.
Ships USPS Priority with insurance included.
