Pewter, Coloured Cast Concrete
On a trip volunteering in the Amazon Rainforest in Peru, I came across a line of leaf cutter ants marching back to their nest. Each carrying a piece of leaf or pink petal creating a dancing line of colour.
I wanted to make the piece part of the environment where it is placed, whether it is a shelf or mantelpiece. When placed against the wall it appears that the ants are entering their nest within the wall. There are also 6 individual ants that can be positioned anywhere, again interacting with their surroundings
