Making "Dung Beetle Navigates by the Stars"

The process of making the dung beetle and it's globe/home/dung ball:

 Welded steel armature was powder-coated then foam packed around it.  The foam was carved, covered with fiber glass tape, and two layers of concrete.  The concrete shell was covered with a glass mosaic which was grouted.    The globe was made from a steel armature covered with a 24" hollow foam sphere, then covered with fiberglass tape and two layers of concrete.  Then it was covered with dark blue stained thin set and pieces of colored, crushed glass.  Several sizes of glass rod were inserted to replicate the constellations.  An LED battery powered light was inserted into the globe so the glass rods light up like stars in the night sky.
