When the word "Kracken" is uttered, people think of a monstrous creature who is known for destroying ships and taking the lives of seafaring men and women, but not beauty. The detail used in the kracken's design adds not only a sense of fear, but a sense of impending doom as well. However the inclusion of a woman in the design, makes one question the story behind the two companions. Perhaps the woman acts as a siren to attract the lonely seaman to their demise, or perhaps the kracken is her protector. It is not only a beautiful design that recalls the legends of old, but inspires new legends as well.
