See Monsters

I like them...

[Pierre Denys de Montfort. Colossal Octopus (1810). Via]

[Andrea Mantegna. Battle of Two Sea Monsters (1475). Via]

[Bror Anders Wikstrom. New Orleans Mardi Gras: Krewe of Proteus float design (1907). Via]

[Johann Zahn. Mythical Satyrus Marinus (1696). Via]

[Olaus Magnus. The mythical island of Thule. Detail from the Carta Marina (1539). Via]

[Albrecht Dürer. The Sea Monster (1498). Via]

[Jean-Marc Côté. Sea Monster (1899). Via]

Also, this guy:

[Conrad Gesner. Sea Monk (1575). Via]

Beware the spiny sea monk and his prickly high fives.
