Installation: Nature expands! 4 ANTS
In 2010 Cosé created the first ants installation NATURE EXPANDS as a statement to global warming. The ants stand for the only survivors in whatever circumstances.
In his art work Cosé lets them grow and gives them larger proportions.
The installation consists of FOUR ANTS
Approx. dimensions of one Ant: L 31 1/2 '', W 26 3/4 '', H 19 3/4 '',(L 80 x W 68 x H 50 cm)
An ant body without the paws: approx. L 17 1/4 '' (44 cm)
These are approximate dimensions: Although the steel parts all have the same rational dimensions, the precise size of the ant varies depending on stretching the paws or bending them tighter (wider paws means lower and narrower means higher).
The dimensions of the whole installation will depend on your space and your composition.
The ants are meant to be mounted to the wall or ceiling.
They're suitable indoors and outdoors. They can stand even humid climates as they're made of Corten steel. Corten steel has a rusty look but the rust is only on the surface and will never go deeper.
The installation will come dated and signed, and will bear the title of the art work and words related to Global Warming
Note 1: if you want a larger number please ask for a quote.
Note 2: If you prefer a smaller size Ant: see the listing for 5 Medium Size Ants. In the last picture of this listing you see the difference between a 'normal' size Ant and a medium size Ant.

An incredibly positive experience with the seller. After an initial mix up we were able to get it sorted and the ants were shipped right away. Arrived in record time for installation. She was really great with quick response times to questions. Highly recommend and would absolutely buy more from her in the future!

These ant sculptures are every bit as spectacular as I expected. They were very well-packed and crossed the Atlantic in perfect condition. Each ant expresses an individual personality through the arrangement of antennae and body posture. My ants are busy oxidizing outside and developing a rusty ant-hued patina. I expect they will be ready to install soon. Can't wait!
