Pasture Painting – under the center of The Park
A beehive is made up of many vessels that appear from above to be a hexagon. It reality they are many elongated hexagonal shapes which fit together perfectly so that they become one large surface cell we refer to as the honeycomb.
It is absolutely remarkable how honeybees manage to make this structure perfectly every time. Very rarely in nature do cells fit so cohesively without any spaces in between them.
Other six sided forms that occur in nature are Quartz crystals. Although these are rarely perfectly symmetrical.
Our singular hexagonal Pasture Painting has been configured on the north-south axis, starting from the northern point. In only a matter of days six bench bee hives with green roofs will be placed within this form and welcomed with an early morning Bee-Blessing.
A six sided dwelling for six hives intended to elicit a harmonic to support thousands of healthy bees.
