Several older small Beetle People have joined my two new Beetles in the House . My two recently made tiny beetles have returned to the house, and they brought several friends. I have eleven tiny beetle people in the house, now permanently affixed to my shower wall. They seem fairly happy to be there.
Look at the first photo to see a strictly unnecessary decorative beetle track. I placed this above the niche used for shampoo and soap so it will mostly be high and dry out of the primary shower area. Eight beetles, all less than 1.5 inches, enjoy this curving branched track. I do not want the beetles to collect water and grow mildew. I won’t be cleaning tiny beetles all the time!
As of today there are three new beetles in the house. Perhaps they multiply on their own!
The three latest beetles follow a long repair track above the built-in seating bench so these will also be out of the normal shower spray area. I think these will be the final additions. The two beetles created from extra repair material have brought enough friends to the house.
Afterwards I decided to sign my work, since I am both the artist and the repair person. It seems good to give myself the credit. And I did this most properly, by using the same sculptural “clay” material I used for the repairs. In order to sign the repair I placed a single “S” at the end of the three beetle track. I formed the “S” with a handy seal designed for use with sealing wax. Remember sealing wax, anyone?
