Title:

We Are the Kraken of Our Own Sinking Ships

Artist:

David Nixon

Medium:

Painting - Acrylic On Canvas

Description:

In pirate legends, it was rumored that the Kraken, a giant squid/octopus, would attack ships at sea. In this image, an octopus is composed of human figures, which grasp in a single tentacle a sinking ship in a bottle. This symbolizes our tendency as humans to act self-detrimentally.
