Octopus, or he'e in Hawaiian, is a shy animal. The he'e hides in undersea holes in lava and coral. It can change colors and squirt ink for defense when bothered. The average size of these creatures is one pound but can reach 5-6 pounds. The he'e feeds mainly on crabs, shrimp, and shells. This design depicts an octopus in a defensive pose, swimming backwards while shooting ink at an enemy. The beauty in this piece is in the full display of all 8 tentacles of the octopus.
We offer three options in this design: wall decor, ornament or magnet. Wall decor is available in sizes medium and large. Decorate your home or office with this beautiful wood art during the holidays, special occasions or all year round. Our unique artwork will brighten and complement any space and multiple pieces may be grouped together to create various themes.
Each piece of wood is meticulously hand contoured and carefully assembled to create multi-dimensional artwork. The beauty and uniqueness of our artwork comes strictly from the natural colors and grains of various wood types. No staining or painting is involved, only an oil finish is used to ensure the beauty as the wood ages. Wood burning is used for small details such as the scales of a fish or turtle, etc. Each piece of artwork is stamped on the back with our Le Family logo.
*Please note that this is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The shape and workmanship are exactly as shown here but because of the different grains and shapes in the exotic woods employed, there will always be some variation in color.
