I didn't get as much aluminum into this fire ant colony as I expected because the aluminum hardened too soon while pouring and prevented a more complete cast. It still turned out great with lots of tunnel and chamber detail.

This cast was raffled by A Soldiers Wings on June 7, 2015. The winner is Sarah Rispoli. Congratulations to her and thanks to everyone who bought tickets.
Base Description
The cast is bolt-mounted to a 6" circular walnut base with quality gloss finish.
