Colossal, the Department of Incredible Insects recently encountered more photos of the fascinating work of French artist Hubert Duprat and his industrious Caddisflies (previously featured here).

"Right now, in almost every river in the world, some 12,000 different species of caddisfly larvae wriggle and crawl through sediment, twigs, and rocks in an attempt to build temporary aquatic cocoons. To do this, the small, slow-moving creatures excrete silk from salivary glands near their mouths which they use like mortar to stick together almost every available material into a cozy tube. A few weeks later a fully developed caddisfly emerges and almost immediately flies away."

Since the 1980s Duprat has been collecting caddisfly larvae from their normal environments and transporting them to aquariums in his studio. There he gently removes their own natural cocoons and puts the larvae in tanks filled with materials such as pearls, beads, opals, turquoise and pieces of 18-karat gold. The insects still do exactly what comes naturally to them, but in doing so they create exquisite gilded sculptures that they temporarily call home. If you saw them out of context, you’d never guess they’d been created insects.

Visit Colossal for additional images and video of Hubert Duprat discussing these amazing insects and their shiny, shiny creations.

I cant believe your theory about Tarn's face on the MTMTE #32 cover becoming reality, it blew my mind! Congratulations!

Oh hey, thanks! That was real subtle of Alex, still surprised I caught that. I guess not even Magnus’ forehead guns could save them…

At least i hope he made an epic comeback by them, getting hold down by the DJD or something and PEW. but as the pages show, he was just plainly shot down. AAGH pity for such an epic gimmick.

Maybe the crew can take the armor’s head and use it as like Medusa’s head, except instead of turning people to stone it shoots them with bullets. Like, “hey DJD we brought you a present you can tell it’s not a gun because it’s shaped like a head”

Rewind’s last line of defense XDD

Vos’ face vs. Ultra Magnus’ head: the ultimate face-off

*Kneels down to a praising position*

You are the ultimate DJD expert, i’m totally out of ideas! :D 2-0 win from your part!

Oh thank goodness, I just ran out of ideas!
