This earwig sculpture has an articulated abdomen made from old ducting and the pincers are a pair of callipers. The ducting allows the abdomen of the earwig to be manipulated.
I discovered that Battle-twig is an old British dialect term for an earwig and appears in a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
In some regions of Japan, earwigs are called "Chinpo-Basami" or "Chinpo-Kiri", which means "penis cutter". I decided to stick with Battle-twig!
