AAMSF—-netsuke-octopus-man by Marshall Astor - Food Fetishist on Flickr.
Via Flickr: a man fights with an octopus. There’s a great symmetry here between the man and the octopus. Is he a fisherman who’s caught something that needs wrestling, or the victim of a dangerous, roving land octopus (a Japanese relative of the prairie squid perhaps?). I really don’t know. Maybe he caught the octopus with his wife and is trying kick it out of the house. From the collection of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.
