created 2003

Inspired by the giant, brilliant-green caterpillars (aka tomato or tobacco hornworms) that attack the artist's pepper plant, Munch, who wiggles in at 12 x 8 x 39 inches, would know how to pack it away, and quickly.

Up to 3 inches long, the live visitors arrive, reproduce and then decimate the pepper plant, leaving all the other foliage in the kitchen garden - including those that humans prefer to eat - untouched. If the worms get a chance to drop to the ground and burrow, they reappear as beautiful and huge sphinx moths, which are also sometimes called hawk or hummingbird moths. These fellows were an inspiration for the metal Munch, the first of a series of critters, and his upstanding companion, Crunch, a lanky fellow at 35.5 x 9.5 x 20(below).
