14" x 14" acrylic, fabric, buttons (hand sewn) on canvas 2021 "In my Spiritual Fabric Octopus Series, I substitute the octopus for the Hindu Gods as well as Christ. I started this work after a vision/hallucination of an octopus being crucified. Later on I dreamed of the Hindu God Ganesh as an octopus.
