Honey bee Shadow Box, Apis mellifera

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


A pinned honey bee (Apis mellifera), done up in the style of scientific collections found in natural history museums and university collections.

I mean it's not exactly the same, I did take a little license to fancy it up a little. I wanted the insect to be shown a respectful way; one that shows off the awesomeness that is intrinsic to the bee.

As for the aesthetic it has a sort of Victorian curiosity style look. Imagining some old time-y naturalist preparing their collection.

Plus it looks neat.


3.8 in x 3.8 in x 1.9 in

Chestnut stained wooden box with opening front door on hinges with a glass panel and a clasp that snaps close.

On top is a small metal loop screwed into the top with a loop of twine for wall hanging.
