Wrestle This Sucker

“Wrestle This Sucker”
12 x12 Mixed Media Mosaic
In researching Octopus for my very first mosaic projects I discovered that young men use to wrestle octopus back in the 60’s. I found this quite shocking and a little sad. I know that these cephalopods look like slimy monsters however once you start reading about octopus you sort of get attached to them. The huge tentacles holding the yellowed photo indicate a much larger Octopus reflecting on maybe a loved one lost or something. The collaged text that you can read has words like predator and human and so on.
