Belly Full Of Bugs by draigathar
I created this sculpture for a "found object" group challenge. My found objects were a wire cage, which I used for the torso of the character, and gnarled willow twigs, which I used to form the arms and legs. I sculpted the head and vines from polymer and epoxy clay and painted the whole thing in acrylics. Since the body was a cage, I figured something had to go IN the cage, which led me to this strange sort of tree man looking shocked by the fact that he's got lightning bugs in his tummy. The bugs actually light up, too - I sculpted them over little LEDs wired up to a microchip that causes them to flash in a random pattern.
