The photos were recently put on display at a gallery in Tokyo, but the octopus wasn’t invited to the opening.
What happened next won’t surprise anyone who’s worked in show business.
After the octopus’ services were no longer needed, he was chewed up and swallowed — literally.
Namada and Yamamoto boiled the octopus and turned it into a hat for one last photo before eating their collaborator.
Some are comparing the photos to artist Katsushika Hokusai’s “Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife,” an 1814 print that depicts sex between a woman and two octopuses. But Yamamoto told TokyoGirlsUpdate.com that wasn’t the inspiration.
