    that is really nifty.. but I wonder how the spiders felt about it. I mean, having your silk taken and being held down and all...

    very pretty though.

    The tapestry is gorgeous... But I shouldn't have opened that link. When I scrolled down and saw the pic of the spiders, I literally jumped in the air and screeched.

    I just read that part and was kind of weirded out. They are pulling the strings directly from their bodies! Does it hurt!???

    This was cool, though:

    The first panel that we wove, we were quite stunned by the fact that it sounded a bit like guitar strings, pinging like metallic guitar strings. I mean, it is a very, very unusual material."
