#164 Secret Hive
This little Secret Hive is made inside a lovely Victorian papier-mache powder pot. The lid is inlaid with shards of mother of pearl. The pot has a lovely aged patina and wear commensurate with its age.. I have polished it with museum grade protective wax.
Hiding inside I have created a 'Secret Hive' with handmade paper honeycomb and three little bees which I have stitched from felt, thread and wire. The 'honey' is made from dyed resin.
The pot when closed, measures: 8cm in diameter and is 7.5cm high.
