This is cool:
“These honeycomb encrusted sculptures look like they’re 3D printed or shaped by a sculptor’s hands but all have been built by nature’s most efficient designers: bees. Canadian artist Aganetha Dyck is the woman behind these wax-covered objects with over 20 years experience working with beekeepers, scientists, and hundreds of bee collaborators.
Dyck’s work reflects the evolution of design today, where due to advancements in technology we can manipulate nature as an effective tool to produce elaborate artwork. Dyck has an inherent interest in collectibles and memorabilia and her personal work mirrors this fascination. Her honeycomb covered collection exhibits a range of items including Edwardian figurines, helmets, shoes and sports equipment that look as though they ought to be sitting within an old curiosity shop.”

I’ve always been fascinated by the work bees do. This collaboration between artist and insect is pretty neat. I wonder if bees could fix my busted van?
