We don’t really know what they are doing, but
we are pretty sure they are making love on the hot walls of the houses of the panel-jungle.
We have many names for them and each child in Eastern Europe knows how much of fun it is to watch them while they are connected to each other. I originally created the motive of these iconic insects, the firebug lovers as an illustration of a poem of Gabriella Kemény.
After that they were turned to enamel pins in a collaboration with Olovka Studio and I also made a seamless pattern from them.
