The "Owoos" where found in the grasslands of Outer Mongolia, the Tunnels where passed through on the way from Nice, to Genoa along the Mediterranean coast. The Lycian tombs series was conceived after a trip to the south coast of Turkey. The Insects series is totally based on mostly dried up found insects lying about.
