This beast is an old relic recovered from a sunken ship, still hosting its former resident.  Oakland artist Courtney Brown fashioned a octopus typewriter I pray makes it as a backdrop for the next 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake. Brown used a 1938 Underwood typewriter affixed with sculpted bronze tentacles – a beautiful fright right out of your dreams or nightmares.

You choose.

Be sure to check out her great shots of the beast in the making.
