Yoneji Inamura’s Contribution To The World: 20,000 Beetles

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

Although [Yoneji] Inamura created several sculptures out of beetles, he spent 6 years in the 1970s constructing this one, which has become his masterpiece and the largest sculpture he ever made. When it was done he donated it to the city.

The sculpture, made from rhinoceros beetles, winged jewel beetles, drone beetles, longhorn beetles and other types of local beetles, depicts the senju kannon bosatsu (1000-armed bodhisattva), a popular Buddhist deity in Japan.

Clever, but VW missed the obvious. The Bugs in the crosswalk should be blue, gray, black and white, and the gray one should be rolling on rims. [Found here.]

Oxford Dictionaries Spelling Bee. On “Fiendish” I got 13/15. I blame the pronunciations and lack of spellcheck. 😛

These folks ain’t got NOTHIN’ on the Lunch Lady, and they’ve got all the food color groups covered, too.
