Tango with Giant Ants



Eight monumental ant sculptures cast in bronze will settle into their new home on the DIFC lawn with the opening of Ant Colony, the brainchild of American artist Susan P. Cochran.
“Ants have been building uniquely planned cities for millennia; living in colonies supported by an instinct to cooperate and work together. Like any new city that requires an advanced infrastructure and network to support a growing community, an ant colony relies on cunning instinct, a demanding schedule and shared responsibilities that result in handiwork that is effective, reliable and immaculate,” explained Bashar Al Shroogi, the Managing Director of Cuadro Fine Art Gallery.


Instead of fighting the enormous giant ants....my good hearted driver tried to appease them by doing the tango. I was completely exasperated. Anyway, at the end of the day...we managed to escape and I am happy to say...his head is still intact!

In my country sculptures of ants are just about zero, there is none, I don't know whether the reason is that they repugnant them or what! Buy Viagra Cheap Viagra.
