This is a modern contemporary stone sculpture of a red ant larva by Denis A. Yanashot
Colorado White Alabaster
7" x 4" x 4"

This sculpture is my interpretation of a red ant larva. The translucency of the alabaster lends itself to an interesting and mysterious effect of a red ant ready to emerge during its pupa stage of development. It is interesting to note that due to the nature of alabaster light transmits through the various graining beautifully. In this particular piece, when light transmits through the top area it actually looks like the red ant larva actually has a brain with a vascular system.
