Adornments like octopus medallions were worn by sailors to ward off evil.
Seamen understood the eerie magic of the octopus. It’s black ink-jet expulsions and other-worldly appearance struck awe (and terror) in the observer.
Hence, it makes an incredibly powerful totem, carrying great status – a symbol of protection and good luck.
