31bee) Male Long-horned Bee

Out of stock

Male Long-horned Bee 2x actual size. I've been fascinated by these creatures ever since I started working on the FIFTY BEES - they are wonderful, enchanting, if you get a chance, look them up on YouTube. They're also one of the UK's most highly declined bees, the majority of its strongholds are along the coast with a few in the Midlands. This is a male Long-horned Bee and is 2x actual size. I really enjoyed making it, working the wool into the soft leather of this vintage stud pot and creating the wings out of fine net. I then finished it with embroidery thread, vintage Kamibari gold thread and beads. Thank you for your interest in this piece - all sales go to support the continuing journey of the FIFTY BEES project.
