Potato Bug Predicament II
Height 40" | Width 20" | Depth 10"
"Growing up I called these little critters potato bugs. Others call them pill bugs, rolly pollies, Armadillo bugs, sow bugs, or pill woodlouse. The proper scientific name is Armadillidium Vulgare. Whatever you call them, they are an intriguing and compelling little shape, especially rolled up. The “predicament” part comes as this little guy finds himself in a bit of a precarious spot as his traveled path has lead him to this point. With a chasm in front blocking the path, indecision overcomes him and he does what potato bugs do best, he rolls up, a natural response, a defense mechanism (which we all have and use in one form or another.) In time he will quietly come out of his ball and carefully find a new way along his path."
