rockinsects: secret ground decor

The same basic form can be used to make butterflies and other insects. They can also be used as rocking chairs or recliners and the large scale models can use the kinetic potential of a rocking chair. The idea is to start small and produce increasingly larger scale versions. Also included are some wind sculptures of bees swarming a nest.
