Bee Keeper

I was in Kona last week. When possible, I like to go to Holualoa to the Donkey Mill Art Center. It's one of the best galleries on the island. They were having their annual auction art show. One piece that really struck me was a sculpture piece. I'm sorry I didn't make a note of the artist to give him credit. The artist is a bee keeper and he got this idea to have the bees help him sculpt. It was a fascinating concept. Here's a work in progress that for obvious reasons is behind glass. There's a hole in the back of the box for the bees to go in and out of. This was displayed in their garden area outside with a warning that if you were allergic to bees not to go.
