I'm reminded of a quote in Annie Hall:

Hmmmmm... neither of the two non-human animals featured (spider and scorpion) are actually bugs... what gives?

Would love to see bigger/high res versions of the work - pointers as to where to look?

As asked before, does anyone know the original location of these beautiful ads? Adrants, can you give the location?
