Sculpture and bee hive, the Eco-Luxury-Loft for a bee colony.
The wooden sculpture is living space for a bee colony, which will be kept in natural ways, a commune with pseudoscorpions and other micro-organisms on the board.
Melissa is the name of the nymphe, though her navel the bees will fly in and out. The greek myths tell, that she nurtured Zeus as a baby in a cave with honey, what saved his live. Here she gives bees a living space, where they build their natural combs. A glass window let us observe this process through the year, and care for them with less disturbing as possible.
— Next sculpture 2019 to be announced — Request and location suggestion welcome —
