This gorgeous sea life print depicts a small variety of the many Octopi and Squids. This vintage print was originally created by Ernst Haeckel an eminent German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species. This print first appeared in his Art Forms in Nature published in 1974. Inspired by the natural beauty of the octopus and squid, our artists have taken the time to retouch the colorful and realistic aspects of this high-quality print and accentuated many of the elaborate details. The muted yellow and green colors against the antique looking beige background enhance the delicate and luxurious form of the original engraving and are sure to make this art piece a favorite among fans of the Cephalopoda as well as the fans of the coastal design. The minimal amounts of color this high-quality piece holds makes it an easy and luxurious addition to any bedroom or living room.
