Here’s an idea. If I’m worried that my wife would object to squid art, I could ease her into the idea by first exposing her to rooms with an arthropod theme. As another advantage, when I opened the door to salesmen and Jehovah’s Witnesses, they’d see giant spiders clinging to the walls and run away.

Salesmen might be deterred by giant spiders, but the JWs would try to give them copies of The Watchtower.
That looks way cooler than cartoonish squid.
that reminds me of a set of crockery i saw for sale in the gift shop at the Salvador Dali Museum in Paris. It was white china with a very tasteful ant motif. If I could have afforded it at the time, and wasn’t worried about it arriving back home in itty bitty pieces, i would so have bought it!

I love the ants! I want some of my own! (Oops, I’ve got some real Tetramorium sp. that are taking care of that matter right now.)
Now squid SCULPTURE…maybe that would work with her?
Angry Professor says
Oh I want these so bad. I was heartbroken to click through and find out it was real art, and that I would have to pay a commensurate price.
Seed’s Zeitgeist included a link to flying trap-jaw ants. Coincidence? Surely. Hilarious? Yeah. Check these babies out.

My partner seems to be resigned to cephalopod and marine abyssal decor. Not happy about it, but resigned to it. I’m extremely lucky, I know.
Here is some squid art with cats http://twolumps.net/d/20060814.html
I guess you haven’t been thru the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport terminal. One of the terminals has a trail of gigantic three or four foot red ants going up the wall, across the ceiling and down another wall in the baggage pickup area.

I took the photos this article is linking too. A very interesting exhibit. Follow the tag for more sculptures by Don Jones in this photoset. And yes, Julie and Prof, the ants are for sale and they are affordable. Just leave one for me :)
Shelob might be better? The door opens and a giant spider snacks on the salesfiends &tc.
