Octopus - White Octopus - Eledone cirrhosa - Specimen in fluid

Museum jar also called flute

Antique glass jar filled with formaldehyde with a wooden base.

Very nice piece, well presented.

Several labels, one of which presents the specimen as a common octopus, octopus vulgaris. But this piece was purchased at a natural history auction and the taxonomist identified it as a white octopus (Eledone cirrhosa).

This is a recent work in an old bottle, despite the labels, one of which is dated 1943, the specimen is recent. It is a replica in the manner of the old conservations of the end of the 19th, beginning of the 20th century.
