Based on things Shigesato Itoi has said, I’m led to believe that the octopus statue wasn’t an octopus statue for any particular reason – it was just a very strange way of blocking the player’s path. Blocking the player’s path in strange ways was a huge part of what Mother 2 was all about. (TL:DR Pencil Statue in Mother 2 is replaced with Octopuses)
