Tomas Libertiny, Unbearable Lightness
Did you know that bees have been creating honey for more than 100 million years?
40,000 worker bees were released into the case to create a wax honeycomb structure over the sculpted morm. The artist managed to lure the bees to construct their hive precisely over the figure. They worked incessantly, creating a complete honeycomb skin, filling each cell with honey and then transferring it to the beehive, cleaning the wax cells they originally created.
Libertiny introduced a natural red pigment (the only color bees can not see) into the mold which the bees spread evenly across the whole figure. (via)
