I've always found the old illustrations of the Kraken interesting and it inspired me to create my own Kraken artwork. This is what I've learned about the Kraken.
The Kraken is a mythical octopus-like sea monster which was feared by ancient sailors.
The myth of the Kraken has been written about for centuries by the earliest Scandinavian writers and many other seafarers around the world.
Scandinavian sailors and fishermen believed the Kraken was a huge monster that appeared in certain sea conditions, especially in the summer.
