The owner of Anthill Art crafts these complex aluminum sculptures to create an interesting design. They were made using molten aluminum poured onto actual ant nests as a the primary foundation. The sand helps the nest harden to develop into distinctive designs. These various designs come in many sizes from simple tunnels of the carpenter ant to the complex mazes of the fire ant. The ant nest structure covered in melted metal gives it a shiny and luminous appearance.

The video shows how the artist poured the aluminum onto the nest and how its excavated from the ground and cleaned. This interesting combination of aluminum showcases an incredible still sculpture that transforms into a solid masterpiece. Aluminum sculptures are just an interesting way to create a new form of modern artwork.
