Alive without Breath

Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I'd call me Us 
 Ogden Nash

An octopus in a bowl? 
No, this is a 3-D creation of Sinapore-based artist Keng Lye - modern-day illusionist, who's work emerges as the result of pouring resin into a bowl, layer by layer and then painting it in great detail with acrylics.
The technique was originated by Riusuke Fukahori. How it's done, watch this video
This is one of a series called Alive without breath. Other equally beautiful examples can be viewed here.
This is Colossal
