You might not be able to keep fish in it, but we just had to show you this fabulous aquatic-themed table.

It has been created by artist Isaac Krauss and features an incredibly detailed bronze sculpture of an octopus. It took 1500 hours and $5000 to complete.

It's an idea the artist had while he was working with ceramics at high school, but due to the limitations of the materials he was working with, he shelved the idea at the time. He decided to finally give it a go when he took a course in bronze sculpting a few years later.

According to the artist, the hardest part of the sculpture was the detailed suction cups and applying them to the octopus' arms.

Worth all the hard work we reckon!
