0 GROUND MEAT Works of Art

What better way to attract customers to your produce than to make them eye-catching? A grocery store in Seattle by the name of Uwajimaya, makes sculptures out of the freshest ground beef and pork which they ground themselves. Their amazing meat displays ranges from castles and cartoon characters to pigs and spiders and are all created by their talented meat department team and the grocery store meat manager Kieran Gormley is the food artist behind the Tumblr Epic Grinds.


AnthillArt.com makes art sculptures out of anthills. Aluminum sculptures of actual anthills to be precise. They are made by pouring the molten metal into the tunnels and chambers of the nest of anthills. (See the video at the end). And as they put it:
The result is an amazing sculpture showing the intricate detail of the nest architecture. The cast is then mounted for display on a wood base. Each display has a stainless steel plaque mounted on the base with information on the cast and a unique cast number. These make perfect displays for a home or as an educational piece for teachers and professors to display in a science classroom or laboratory.

An Anthill Cast

This cast has a very interesting structure that I haven’t seen in any of the other fire ant colony casts. Instead of having a single distinct tapering structure to it like the other casts, this cast has a large main structure and two offshoots near the ground surface: one toward the front of the display and one to the side, which almost looks like a separate distinct colony.
