The Lord Bodner Octopus is quite popular in the design world. The image is produced by Natural Curiosities and comes in blue, brown or grey. The image can be mounted in one frame or in a trio of frames (like in the images below). The original was apparently a copperplate engraving by Lord Bodner and published in 1826.

Here is another octopus print from Natural Curiosities called, Octavio Octopus.

And an Octopus Figurine from Made Goods. He actually has a name... Paul the Octopus. I like Paul.
On a slightly different, but still somewhat related note, what is the plural of octopus? I had thought "octopi" but apparently that is objectionable. According to Wikipedia, there are three plural forms of octopus: octopuses, octopi, and octopodes.
Ha! You learn something new everyday!
