Stitched Sealife: The Oarfish dreams of world domination

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 19, 2010

Stitch London are teaming up with London’s Natural History Museum on August 27 to bring you the Stitch a Squid event.

Six stitched specimens from the Deep Sea have escaped in the Museum. We hunted down number three of the Stitched Sealife Six…

The mysterious Oarfish, also known as the rather regal ‘King of Herrings’ is not often seen, despite the fact that they can grow up to 10 metres long. This Oarfish tiddler, stitched into existence by Stitch Londoner Knitterbird, may be a minnow but he has grand plans.

Bow to his majesty, the Oarfish

Lurking 1000 metres beneath the sea this Oarfish has had plenty of time to plan his strategy on his journey to ground level. He was last seen in a commanding position at the entrance to the Museum’s Deep Sea exhibition.

When I am 10 metres long I will have your heads, airbreathers...

Often mistaken for legendary man-guzzling sea serpents in tales of old, this particular Oarfish is rumoured to have world domination plans aplenty.

Do not let the distinguished ‘moustache’ and fly away hair-do fool you. His plans for the world above the waves are sure to be dastardly.

Submit to the rule of my iron fin, puny humans!

Return tomorrow for another damp chapter of the Deep Sea escapee story.

You can also come along to the Natural History Museum August 27 to Stitch a Squid and join in the hunt for them.
