the octopus

replica ancient Greek Minoan pottery and jewellery with octopus motif online and at It's All Greek London

As a creature of the water, the octopus relates to the psyche, emotion and intuition and has come to be a symbol of intelligence and flexibility. The Minoans depicted the octopus on their pottery and frescoes: the silent, graceful creature, unfurling its tentacles, and moving slowly through an element that is itself constantly in motion.
