Artist Rafael Gómezbarros’ Giant Ant Infestations Will Make Your Skin Crawl

For over a decade, Colombian artist Rafael Gómezbarros has been frightening passers-by with his swarms of giant creepy-crawlies invading prominent governmental structures in and around Colombia. Entitled Casa Tomada (“Taken House”)the two-feet-long insects represent the displacement and plight of migrant workers throughout the world, as well as being a tribute to those who have been affected by the half-century-long strife in Colombia.

The massive creatures have found themselves crawling across the National Congress building in Bogotá and on the walls of the resting place of political leader Simón Bolívar.
