"This piece is one in a series that came about through a recent commission i did for Dele Costa- a new restaurant in chicago. it was a big commission including 11 marionettes and other sculpture. the restaurant has a costal theme to it so i thought i'd make some fish and octopuses. i took an old doll carriage and turned it into a fish cart to hold them. i don't really like to do commissions but sometimes when i do do them, they spin me off into another direction i might not had originally pursued. i've since put my marionettes down to work on more animal/hybrid type sculptures."
Fowler's Modern English Usage states that "the only acceptable plural in English is octopuses"
