by META Monaco
is a unique necklace inspired by the master of disguise,
the fascinating octopus who lives in the magic realm of water,
although it can walk on dry land. In his 1973 book Octopus and Squid: The Soft Intelligence, Jacques Cousteau tells this charming story:
“Our friend Gilpatric ... brought an octopus home and put it in an aquarium, which he then covered with a heavy lid. A short time later, the aquarium was empty, and Gilpatric found the octopus going through his library, book by book, turning the pages with its arms.” Octopuses are impressively smart and they keep themselves busy. They can solve puzzles, recognize human faces, navigate mazes, and even open childproof bottles. In the 1990s, a biologist gave plastic pill bottles to the octopuses in his lab. Once they learned the bottles weren’t edible, all of the octopuses lost interest— except for one. A female octopus used her funnel to push the bottle to the opposite end of her tank. The water current pushed it back, and again, she pushed the bottle away. After repeating the move 18 times, the biologist had no doubt: The octopus was playing a game of bouncy ball. The octopus is an expression of femininity, a symbol of seduction, it has charm and grace, it’s a beautiful enigma. The META Octopus is a talisman handcrafted with a passion for excellence in magic Monte-Carlo.
