An Altar to the Bee

I just finished my final project for my Sacred Geometry class. I created an altar to bees using encaustic (wax) painting medium, a Super (bee hive box), bee hive frames, altered stickers, wooden bees, live flowers, candles and found objects.

My favorite found object is a vintage h
oney pot my mother in law was about to toss out.

omething really cool happened while I was doing the encaustic painting, a very large honey bee flew through the altar and buzzed around each of the melting encaustic color pans then left.

I told my sacred geometry professor that it must have been Artemis coming to bless the project...
