Artist's Description

Thinking about insect nests, such as a bee hive or a monolithic termite mound, I realised that these structures are like fortresses to defend their queen and offspring from would be raiders. Taking this premise, I created this huge super hive that floats thanks to the many energy balls built into its organic hull.

I imagine the insects inside are about human size and that the swarm leaking from the holes are their winged soldier type. Deep inside, the queen of this locust like species, pumps out eggs in their millions and, the ground below, barren for hundreds of miles, has been picked clean by the ravenous scavengers.
