Those who consider themselves fans of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' will dig this Kraken bookend. Etsy merchant Michael Locascio of Dellamorte & Co. is the artist behind this monstrous bookshelf accessory. The bookend depicts the mythical sea creature tearing a ship in two. It's not known whether or not the ship in question is the Black Pearl.

Locascio built the Kraken bookend from hand, making it as much a piece of art as it is a device used to hold books in place. The devil truly is in the details, with the Kraken's suction cups and tentacles looking as realistic as they can at such a small scale. Even if you don't read books, this piece would look awesome as art in any house or on any boat. The Kraken bookend is on sale now for $250.
