This Artist Poured Molten Aluminum Into An Anthill And The Results Are AWESOME! I Didn’t Know This Could Happen!
As a kid, I was always outside playing in the dirt. We moved around a lot, but my favorite places to play were always the messiest. I would make mud pies and “ant castles” and moats and just about anything that would be certain to ruin my play clothes, much to the frustration of my mother. It didn’t matter where we lived, I would always find a spot outdoors to spend those long and lazy summer days – even if it meant I had to take more than one bath that day. I didn’t care! As long as I was having fun, it didn’t matter.
When I saw this video, I didn’t know what to expect! I remember digging up an old anthill once when I was younger, but I didn’t have enough of an attention span to reach the bottom. Mom had killed the ants with some homemade mixture, and it was the only time I had gotten to really look into an anthill. I had an idea of what it might look like, but to my 8 year old brain, it just looked like a bunch of teeny tiny holes in the ground.
This molten cast blew my mind. Seeing this video made me nostalgic for the days I would play for hours outside, and I think I need one of these anthill casts in my house somewhere. It’s just too amazing. I believe it would be a great tool in the classroom, too! Imagine learning about ants while looking at this masterpiece! I would have loved school a lot more, that’s for sure!
