EXPLORE THE BEAUTIFUL WORLD OF CUSTOM
HAND-CRAFTED FORMICARIUMS!


A Homage To Ants

Ants hold a precious place in Zat’s heart and over the years, he has dedicated extensive time to learning, researching and mastering the process of creating exquisite, hand crafted formicariums for ants. These works of art boldly reflect his own personal reflections on his life and how it seemingly runs in relativity to the life of ants.

Through the exploration of different construction mediums, Zat has artistically created a series of formicariums that will be able to showcase every aspect of an ant’s nest. From the intricate winding tunnels to the willowy greens, every subtle detail has been carefully hand crafted to highlight the wondrous, labyrinthine life of ants.
