Beijing Based Artist Collaborates With Bees To Create His Sculptures

Bees are an intrinsic part of the natural world, and without them crops will fail, flowers won’t bloom and the human race will be in big trouble, but there’s another thing we’ll be missing out on if bees become extinct-their natural artistic gifts.

Beijing-based artist Ren Ri decided to collaborate with bee colonies to demonstrate their natural artistic gifts, a celebration to the beauty bees bring to our world.

Ren starts with a basic framework of wooden sticks mounted in a clear plastic case, then he places the queen in the middle of the structure and lets the worker bees build around her, rotating the box every seven days to help shape the hive "sculpture".

The final result is a totally organic sculpture that is more bee- than man-made, a home and handsome work of natural art in one.
