The significance of this art form depicting a bee is best described in the words of famous public figures throughout the history of mankind.
In the words of the famous physicist, Albert Einstein - “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more mankind.

Engineer - Formicidae

We live in a parallel world - a world below the ground and the world just above the ground. Humans have always lived life imitating and emulating the surrounding.

It is sad that humans are now refusing to imitate a reality that is just below our ground. A culture, a social movement of care and love and duty.

This art form represents a tiny insect yet they have a large heart which is more compassionate towards protecting its own kind.

I chose this sculpture to show the greatness of a tiny society with a population unimaginable yet one which retains the same principle of living. A code of ethics that we humans are nowhere near.

This art form encourages the human population to realize that it is not size that matters but the proportion with which we should work together for mutual benefit and learning to take care of each other and the Earth.
