The bee is shell formed and tig welded, then filled with pitch and textured. the antenna and legs are silver soldered. The wings and honey are cast polyester resin. the body segments come apart and the bee is attached to the honeycomb by a threaded rod brazed to the abdomen. It can hang flat on a wall but looks nice if its floating off a little bit so light can shine through. The honeycomb is about 30 inches wide.
