    • In reality, that’s not exactly a crab. The body shape is that of a crab (sort of longish) but for the rest, it is smooth, without any joints or segments, more like a mollusc. With the Venezuelan colors to boot. To me, it’s a marine creature, imagined by an artist from a country that is a thousand miles from the sea. I found that alien thing sitting at an upscale shop in Minsk. In a second, I decided not to miss the chance to own it.
