Very unusual ceiling (6 pics)

Posted in Pictures   1 Sep 2009   / 4941 views

Surprisingly enough, but this green ceiling is made from ... 1,600,000 jewel beetles.
It is situated in the Royal Palace in Brussels and called Heaven Of Delight.
The ceiling was created by the Flemish artist Jan Fabre, previously known for his works from blood, semen and insects.
Thirty people assisted him and it took four months to glue all the bugs.
It’s a horror, of course. But it’s called art anyway.

This is one of the more conservative works of Jan Fabre. Google him sometime.

I think it's beautiful.
