It's food art!
I doodled this little beetle over winter break.
His abdomen is a walnut shell.

That's neat-o!  The walnut texture/shape really does a great job of replicating an insect abdomen.  Have you considered doing a series of similar pieces using different nuts, or perhaps other found items?
