'Termite Hills'

Font Size: AAA

The 'Termite Hill' sculptures induce awe in their monumentality. The fact that insects make these architectural formations by mixing their own excrement with saliva adds a level of amazement that something so repellent could become so inspiring in form. The casts of the hills were made on-site, working with the local people in a village in Ghana, Africa to create molds that were transported to the United States where the bronze could be poured and patinated.
