Giant Stitched Squid – Darwin and the giant stitched squid

My giant Stitched Squid, Plarchie, made for London's Natural History Museum. Made from 162 plastic bags and a whole lot of stitching.


For the whole tale see the Whodunnknit.

    Darwin always did strike me as the classic, stereotypical wise old scientist.

    He looks even better wearing a squid.

    Oh man, this rocks so incredibly hard!
    1) It's a squid. Squids rock!
    2) It's knitting. Knitting is cool!
    3) It's reusing plastic bags. That's cool!
    4) It's public artwork, rock!
    5) It's posing with artworks, yeah!
