The ideas behind this insect:

The idea for this stubborn larval beetle that burrows its way into wood came from those times when we have to stubbornly press on through barriers when no alternative exists. The skirt on the insect illustrates that there is no backing out, because then it’ll be trapped in the narrow bore hole. . There’s only one way, and that’s onward, through the barriers!
