Evil Fairies Battle Insects

Artist, Tessa Farmer has created a twisted little menagerie; a vindictive mini-race that seeks to enslave and torture the insects on our lovely planet. Cool idea, but I think I'm going to have nightmares about this tonight. This from her site:
"Tessa's miniscule sculptures reinvigorate a belief in fairies: not the sweet Tinkerbell image in popular conscience, but a biological, entomological, macabre species translating pastoral fable into nightmarish lore. Constructed from bits of organic material, such as roots, leaves, and dead insects, each of Tessa ’s figures stand barely 1 cm tall, their painstakingly intricate detail visible only through a magnifying glass."
