Bee Artwork ‘Making A Bee line’ by Amanda Deadman
A beautiful and inspiring paper sculpture that features the humble yet essential bee. This bee artwork represents how freedom can be found from rushed and frenetic lives.
Amanda hand-paints each of the 30 watercolour bees individually. They have alternate silver and gold wings. They are three dimensional with wings upturned and are mounted on small blocks of balsa wood.
The hand-cut and painted watercolour bees are decoratively arranged and attached to silver crepe paper, onto heavy-weight watercolour paper, within a deep box frame.
Amanda’s sculptural artworks are unique and hand signed by the artist.
