Sea Life - Blue Bottles/Portuguese Man O' War
Blue Bottles/Portuguese Man O' War is 18.5 x 20.5 oil on canvas with three Blue Bottles, also known as Portuguese Man O' War because they resemble an18th Century Portuguese warship under full sail. A species closely related to jellyfish, they float like balloons; their long strand tentacles are deadly and capture prey by paralyzing them. Framed by the artist in weathered wood strips. Beachcombers beware, their sting can pack a wallop.
