a bed of forget-me-nots
Made with honeycomb, beeswax, raw honey, and collaged elements, there is a blend of fact and fantasy oozing out. This piece is a flip on the specimen box. Habitats and habits are always missing from specimen boxes. The beekeepers box, honeycombs, honey production, and pollination demands are within a specimen box that is engulfed by bees that are made from the materials that they themselves can only produce. This particular honeycomb came from a local beekeeper at Hott Apiary in McGaheysville, VA. 2018.
