  OCTOPUS PLAQUE BY SAMMY DAWSON 19SD1
 

The Octopus is a remarkable eight-armed sea creature that possesses the ability to change colour, shape and even texture. Undoubtedly, Octopus is common in shamanic art due to its amazing transformational abilities. Myths speak if giant devilfish monsters that occasionally devour canoes and sometimes even entire villages.

In some tribal cultures, eight is considered a magic and auspicious number, which adds to the appeal and power of Octopus. Octopus, a servant of Komokwa, chief of the undersea world, is identifiable by long tentacles that have round marks that represent suckers, large eyes, and a short beaked mouth.
