Amber Carving of an Octopus
With its highly textured skin, a naturalistic realism imbues this octopus carved from Indonesian amber. The natural variations of the material have been well utilized in the composition grading from dark whiskey brown at the top to a lighter sherry color at the tips of the tentacles, raised on a custom-made teakwood base, height overall: 6 1/4 in
