A previously unknown bright blue crab has been discovered on a small island in Washington State! The huge crustacean measures approximately 20" in width, 15” in height and 5” in thickness. His general coloration ranges from luscious turquoise to a rich Mediterranean blue, with a touch of cobalt. (The color of his flesh remains unknown since no one has had the heartlessness to crack him open.) Only one intact specimen has been collected to date, but avid beachcombers and crustaceophiliacs have organized search parties throughout the subject area in hopes of gathering additional samples.

The artist, a compulsive beachcomber, has painted this new species on a rectangular lumbar pillow, just the right size to tuck behind your lower back or your weary head. Individually hand-painted in nontoxic textile paint on a warm white ground, then sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by the artist. Arrives in a shiny, crinkly, reusable cellophane bag with a snappy hangtag, ready for gift-giving.

The commercial indoor-outdoor fabric is pure acrylic to weather the weather without fading, shrinking or shredding. The size is perfect for deck, patio, hammock, easy chair, recliner, sofa, porch swing, or beach blanket. The cover can be easily spot cleaned or gently machine-washed; air dry. Removable polyester insert is machine washable and dryable. His colors just happen to match those in other coastal pillow designs elsewhere on this site!

The public is invited to participate in the information-gathering process to enlarge available scientific data pertaining to this unique crustacean. Beachcombers discovering specimens are asked to contact researchers at 1-800-BIG-BLUE-CRAB. Photographic evidence can be transmitted electronically to crabbychris.etsy.com. Thank you for your participation.
