Hand-Painted Ants Crawling on Vintage Porcelain Dishes

Array

Gear  |  Design
German artist Evelyn Brackow of La Philie creates these one-of-a-kind vintage porcelain dishes covered in hordes of hand-painted ants. (Order at La Philie's Etsy site)
"The idea for this work resulted from pure chance, when the sight of a carelessly placed plate – by then wandered by ants – fascinated me so much that I felt the urge to simply conserve this image. Fear, disgust, fascination and admiration: This very interplay of feelings constitutes the charm of the work. Furthermore, to me, the ants symbolize all the stories that any formerly discarded piece of porcelain carries with it. Where one once dined and drank, today ants bustle in ever new formations, every single one applied with a great love for detail."
