The Octopus Chair – Maximo Riera

The Octopus Chair belongs to a much bigger project by the artist called, The Animal Chair Collection, which constitutes a diverse range of species, where furniture and animal are the main components.

Each creation retains the animal’s natural vitality  whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This series  is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect  and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.

This is a limited edition project in order to preserve the unique and exclusive character of the piece. Each chair has been assembled, sanded and painted by hand.  All of them are signed and dated for complete authentication.
