Insects in Decor

I adore anything insect. Today, Apartment Therapy included a link for Ant'ique, which is a wallpaper that won the "New Walls, please! 2007" design competition hosted by the German Design Council and A.S. Création. At first glance this wall treatment appears to be a classical baroque pattern, but on further inspection, the design is composed of thousands of ants. This reminded me of a piece I saw in the "Installation/Innovation: Textile Art in the 21st Century" exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Craft + Design. It was an installation that included an amazing wallpaper covered in beetles.
