Whoa of the Day: Ant Colony Cast

… Playing with ants isn’t just for kids as Florida State University professor Walter Tschinkel shows us in just a moment. Tschinkel replicates the form of ant colonies by pouring molten aluminum into the tunnels, letting the metal harden, and then meticulously excavating the result.

I’m not going to question the cruetly of pouring of molten aluminium inside an ant colony but the finished cast is beautiful – it looks like a piece of art.
