I just finished creating this bug made of bones today, inspired in a round about way by my participation in The Artist Challenge group. Each month this diverse and talented group of artists picks a theme to create artwork around, which is for sale, and is displayed en masse at http://www.theartistchallenge.comIt's a democratic process, ideas are proposed and then voted on, and when June came around this month the firs thing that popped into my mind was June bug - which I didn't take literally - I only thought June...Bug. Bugs in June - I'll use any excuse to focus on bugs.
So it only seemed natural that I combine the two! The best part, which the pictures don't show, is that the bottom set of legs move, still in natural delicately attached hinges.
The bones are mainly attached with encaustic wax, with a few reinforced by fine brass wire.
