Perhaps a deterrent to nail-bitiing

Yes, I know... one isn't supposed to be judgmental about art.  If you don't care for something, just move on.  But really... a dead cranefly displayed on a nail offered as "embedded in amber."

Perhaps the next step is to create a teeny, tiny air pocket between layers of the "amber," then insert a wood tick, which will probably crawl around for a long time...

  1. That would deter me from biting my nail, but unfortunately instead of biting my nails I pick at them and tear them off. A nervous habit. Not a good idea with a live wood tick, as it would likely be freed in the house. Now I am wondering if a live wood tick that was ingested by an undeterred or absent-minded nail biter would survive the acidity of the stomach and either embed there or further down, in the small intestine? An ectoparasite living as an endoparasite, at least for a while? Hmmm.
