Artists from under the bark

While walking in the country land and rediscovering the plants I never payed attention to before, my sight was caught by a piece of wood from a pile of chumps. Brown shades overflowing each other and..texture - similar signs all over the piece, as if it was some mage's stick from the black Continent...magical signs. And the damnedest thing was that all that art was made by the tiny artists that lived under the bark - bark beetles (Scolytinae)...


Just a thought that something in nature drives those tiny beetles feed moving in a certain scheme - like drawing a silhouette of a branch of conifer seams miraculous... It's like a little touch to a code of life, matrix of life again...




I put that piece of wood into garage... I don't know what I'll make from it yet, but I will...

Wow, that's just amazing! Talking about having natural instincts to be an artist, those little beetles deserve to be on top of that list. Makes you wonder what other creatures create art without us realizing it? Love it. Chantal
