Paula Hayes - Nocturne of the Limax Maximus (2010)

"Inspired by the leopard slug, a hermaphroditic animal with mating rituals quite unique in the natural world. Two twine around each other to form a caduceus shape, then suspend themselves in mid-air from a long mucous string. The incandescent blue male organs of each emerge from the tops of their heads and, likewise, twine around the other’s to form a glowing orb that slowly morphs into a flowerlike form.”
