From Cryptozoology On-line: Richard Freeman's Strange Tales of Japanese Octopi

The beautiful painting shown here (and on the Crytozoology on-line site) is by artist Katsushika Hokusai, painted in 1820. Title: Dream of a Fisherman’s Wife

A very interesting piece by Richard Freeman on octopi imagery in Japanese culture and lore on the Cryptozoology On-Line site. I really enjoyed this piece! Thanks to Lesley at The Debris Field for the link.
