The Anatomical Work of Nunzio Paci

artist on tumblr

“My whole work deals with the relationship between man and Nature, in particular with animals and plants. The focus of my observation is body with its mutations. My intention is to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination.”

 Alaqua Fry: Severed and Sexy works

 on deviantART

Alaqua Fry is a nocturnal ninteen year old artist and illustrator. She says “Alaqua” is Cherokee Indian for Sweet Gum Tree. Alaqua’s self proclaimed love for nudity is represented in this series of sliced and diced women. Without allowing these works to become gruesome, she appeals to our general love of nudies but creates intrigue with a little blood and gore.

New favorite bug! This is a wasp mantidfly. It uses mimicry to look like a wasp, but in reality is actually harmless to humans. It’s most like a praying mantis in behavior despite the obvious anatomical differences.

basically all the cutest bugs smashed together

It’s also important to talk about the life cycle of these guys

They’re related to lacewings and antlions, but their larvae are brood parasites of spiders, usually wolf spiders.

In its early stages, the mantidfly larva is highly mobile and hunts down a spider to latch onto. It needs a female host, but it may settle for a male and transfer later, when the host mates.

It hangs out and sucks on spider body fluids until its host lays eggs, at which point it crawls right into the spider’s egg case as it’s being formed, and molts into an entirely different, legless larva with a new set of mouthparts.

The mantidfly grub changes from spider-sucking parasite to egg-eater, cracking open every spider egg and slurping out its contents while the mother spider continues to carefully guard the case.

And then a mantis-headed fake wasp comes out!
