Description

The Bee will let you Be... (aka The Golden Cell)

a mixed media collage / assemblage...
featuring a drawing of a bee minding the golden contents of a single golden cell in a honeycomb made from the same paper as the book that makes the frame. The cover is hand embroidered with the phrase. There is glass behind the front cover, protecting the contents of the interior. The book is sealed shut. This piece is from a series I made for a gallery show in 2014. The back is signed and dated. Ready to hang on your wall with sawtooth hardware or display on your table or shelf.

So yeah, the phrase...
It's sort of what I tell my friends when a bee is buzzing nearby, it will go away on it's own without swatting the air around you. And yeah, without the bees, there is no being without their contribution to our food cycle.

And the actual book, the colour was nice & I liked the title on the spine "The Golden Cell" by Karen van Kampen

Measurements:
inches: 6.25 x 9.25 x 1
cm:15.8 x 23.5 x 2.5

I had this listing on my wishlist for months before deciding to purchase it. I am not disappointed. These books are in great condition, and shipping was average international speed. :)
