At first glance, these ant-crawling images may give a hair-raising and creepy feeling, but the Rafael Gómez Barros Art is definitely one to be admired.

The thousands of huge ants crawling on every inch of the building are actually fiber-glass ants designed by Rafael Gómez Barros. He has attached these gigantic creatures on government buildings and monuments. The images show the National Congress of Columbia building set in Casa Tomada, Bogota. Every artist has a meaning to his portrayal, and so does Rafael. To him, this is a symbolic presence of the conflict present in Columbia.

Such hair-raising pieces are bound to be admired once the significance and symbolism is known to all. The Rafael Gómez Barros Art is truly a masterpiece and many artists are following in his footsteps. Stats for Insect-Clad Building Art Trending: Older & Mild
