For honeycomb-related artwork, may I recommend the work of Fiona Hall?

My family kept bees when I was growing up so I've certainly had exposure; nonetheless I find the hexagonal grid of inspect colonies to be an extremely unpleasant and unsettling sight. Is that just my particular hangup, or a genetic stinging-insect aversion?

I love it.
Do lotus pods make you uncomfortable as well?
Perhaps you have Trypophobia

I love the idea and execution of these sculptures, it's super tight; but the subject matter does nothing for me. The technique seems wasted on trite scenes from Versailles, IMHO. Still, it's pretty neat. I can respect that the artist chose it as a way to present this technique.

That's very pretty. Many of my older sister's friends had a beehive hairdo back in the day, but these are the first ones I've seen made by real bees.

Dyck was also featured here some time ago. I was particularly struck by her 'Shoes'.
