Artist's Description

Termite mounds are surprisingly large; both the visible parts and especially their underground tunnel networks. This one was almost 2 metres tall, but they can measure over 3 metres above ground. Mound-building termites combine dirt with their own saliva to essentially create a silky concrete solution, which they then regurgitate collectively and repeatedly to build up the mound.
