Aluminum Anthill Casting

The Science

Anthill castings are made by pouring molten aluminum into abandoned anthills. This magical process reveals the complex structure that supports the sophisticated social life of ants. The largest chamber, easily identified, is the queen's dedicated residence.

The Story

The art of anthill casting has only been developed relatively recently, and has been gaining in popularity. One of the most incredible features of this art form is that you never know what you're going to get - you have to wait until the aluminum is set to reveal the structure underneath the surface. This piece is from an artist in Florida.
