QUEEN ANT

Queen ant.  This is a gigantic ant compared to its natural size. In the pile of scrap metal that I’ve accumulated, I found several aluminium dishes that I put together in descending order and got something that looked a lot like the body of an ant. That is what determined its overall size. The insect came out graceful, though I mounted a torch on its head to make it easier to navigate those mazes of anthill tunnels.

Parts used:

. Body – truck lamp housing, lamp shades

. Tail – truck lamp housing, ceiling lamp shades

. Head – car lamp housing, aluminium spoons, curtain rod finial

. Legs – aluminium tubes, 5 mm steel wire
