Abstract art? No, actually it's maggot art. Rebecca O'Flaherty, the founder of Maggot Art educational curriculum explains:
What are maggots?
Many groups of insects have four stages of development in their lives: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Butterflies are a well-known example of this phenomenon and have special names for two of the stages: a "caterpillar" is a butterfly larva, and a "chrysalis" or "cocoon" is the butterfly pupa. Flies also have four stages, and in many cases their larvae are called "maggots."
Will the maggots or I be harmed in the making of Maggot Art™?
We use only non-toxic water-based paints to make Maggot Art™. The maggots are not harmed by this paint, and they are released as adults after they have completed their development. In addition to cleaning the maggots before use, we handle them with forceps so you will not have to worry about contamination.
