Reviewing The Minoan Coloring Book yesterday, which contains a line drawing of an ancient Minoan octopus jar, I was reminded of this picture that I took in the British Museum. It shows a Mycenaean octopus jar dating from 1300-1400BC that was found at Rhodes.

Altough I have always liked this jar, I think the one depicted in The Minoan Coloring Book is more fun – the octopus has such a cheeky expression. I have no idea what either octopus jar originally contained, but I sort of hope it wasn’t a real octopus.

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. I’m not quite sure what I’ll be including – it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch’s Blog.
