Giant Squid Attacking a Ship - Silk Black and White Pocket Square

The colossal octopus is a drawing by malacologist Pierre Dénys de Montfort from 1801.
The giant squid's elusive nature and fearsome appearance have long made it a popular subject of legends and folk tales. Its popularity as an image continues today with references and depictions in literature, film, television, and video games. Often, the giant squid is represented as being in dramatic, evenly matched combat with a sperm whale.
The legend originated from sightings of giant squids that may grow to 40-50 feet in length.
