The honeybee is so industrious in creating hives and honey, and so ecologically vital! this papercut is a celebration of the honeybee. it is a large piece, measuring 25 1/2" x 19 3/4". the hive is cut from cream colored 98lb. light-resistant and acid free french paper. it is mounted on a deep navy blue paper of the same. It can be framed either horizontally or vertically. either way it is a very graphic and bold papercut piece.
