Dali's lifelong interest in the insect world stemmed from a childhood fear of the fascinating creatures. The grasshopper, praying mantis and ant were used in many of his works as symbols and icons. This unique ant is 5 inches long. He is a unique beadwork wire sculpture made by skilled artisans in Southeastern Asia. A handcrafted work of art, he truly belongs in Dali's surreal world! Not a toy, but for decorative purposes.
