Ant colony art..Hugh Hayden

Now, I know what you're thinking...But I'm not suggesting you hang it in you kitchen or dining room, unless you wanted too, but what about in your childs room? I have never seen anything like this, only the basic ant farms..and it's so remarkable to me how ants create this whole world, and we get the pleasure (for once) to sit back, relax and watch.  Hugh Hayden is the designer, you might remember the various pieces that he made out of tennis balls?

I guess since ants do work so hard, we can give them a little props!  Enjoy and thanks to FRAMEicarium.

The name FRAMEicarium stems from the word formicarium: the scientific term for the enclosure of ant colonies. Since, in this design the art-farm is showcased as a framed piece of art or simply placed on a table, the name FRAMEicarium seems fitting.  

The frames for the designs come in a vivid spectrum of color schemes coordinated to match the sand, Plexiglas and salvaged frame in each piece.  The Plexiglas used for the viewing box and is inserted into the frame and punctured to allow air and feeding holes.
