Octopus, 2013

Oil on canvas, 210x210

The octopus is being considered sacred to the island of Samoa which includes God as a creator in the genesis of the universe. First of the two elements of the sea, the octopus with its sovereignty, with its majesty is an element of strength and renewed vitality. The artist associates it with the symbolic figure of the siren and creates the perfect meeting. The artist imagines this meeting in the abyss as something destined to immortality. The marine element has three hearts and is being considered one of the most intelligent invertebrates. Since ancient times it is seen as a disturbing element for its fatality.
