The Octopus

This old tree stump, was I believe first painted by local artist about town Rick Worth.




I have photos of it in it's original form in this blog, painted a turquoise color, including here, from 2008: http://conchscooter.blogspot.com/2008/07/public-art.html




Apparently it's had a make over, by whom I don't know but it is in the original style, to my untutored eye.




It's on Catherine Street and impossible to miss.




The detail is absolutely fantastic.




I nearly tripped over the tentacles as I circled the octopus,




And I was terrified of scratching it. I hope this version lasts an equally long time.
