Probably the most Alien of all my pieces, literally as some have said it looks like a facehugger. Inspired by a video I saw of an Octopus drowning a Seagull. I applied that same concept except to a Jellyfish.

This Jellyfish floats on the surface of the ocean. Minnows or tiny fish swim in through the openings in the bowl and feed on the remaining bird bits. Other Seagulls above are drawn to these feeding fish.

The long outstretched, floating arms grab the unsuspecting birds and hold on. The lower tentacles fill with water to weigh down the gulls and drown them.

Originally, it was going to be much more complex with a double bowl, kind of like a fondue fountain. The lower bowl would have so much water displacement that the birds could take off but the piece was getting much too large. Instead I simplified it to one bowl and tentacles that sucked up water to gain enough weight that the Seagull couldn't fly.
