This was by far the biggest and most elaborate installation I've created yet.  It took about 72 hours, 2.5 yards of fabric, 2 lbs of wax, 640 black grommets, 2 blow torches (and a torch-buddy), and a boat load of patience to make.  More information, including the scientific name and description will be in the next blog post.
