Caddis Fly larvae are known to incorporate bits of whatever they can find into their cocoons, be it fish bone or bits of leaves. Hubert Duprat gave them gold, turquoise, gems and pearls. - Discovered this one with a good 'ol latte... Thanks AndrieneHannah
I like that the artist turned a mundane object such as a pencil into a sculpture with emotion and a story, while maintaining the shape of the pencil (the bird cage is the shape and size of pencil lead).
