Sculpture: Talking Continents

Anthill Art is a series of aluminum casts revealing the incredibly intricate design of ant colonies. Each one is created by pouring molten aluminum into an anthill, then digging up the cooled metal.  Occasionally, one of these casts is sold through Ebay.  Meanwhile, you can keep up to date through the AntHill Art Facebook page.
"I make casts of ant colonies using molten aluminum to fill the tunnels and chambers of the nest. The result is an amazing sculpture showing the intricate detail of the nest architecture. The cast is then mounted for display on a wood base. Each display has a stainless steel plaque mounted on it with information on the cast and a unique cast number. These make perfect displays for a home or as an educational piece for teachers and professors to display in a science classroom or laboratory."
