The Octopus, Alto-relief art tile & plaque by American sculptor Matthew Kent. This wonderful wall art is made in Indiana of Italian alabaster stone composite and layered in real bronze with an acid hand applied Tiffany patina finish. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates. The octopus inhabits many diverse regions of the ocean, including coral reefs, pelagic waters, and the ocean floor. A great gift for octopus lovers and a great conversational work for nautical home decor. -One of my favorite works I have made, I love making them for customers. Truly an amazing piece to own. Signed on the back by me, for you. :-) -Overall size is approx. 8 x 8" Each tile is handmade and will have it's own unique finish. For indoors only. -Tile version has a flat back and no hanger. The plaque version has a solid copper hanger cast into the piece. Is available with custom wood frame too! All work is copyrighted, by the sculptor in the USA.
