Portfolio -  Bee Exhibit -Toledo Zoo

I designed a Drone Honey Bee, and the Pupa and Larva stages for a the new exhibit, Nature's Neighborhood, at the Toledo Zoo. The exhibit was designed so children can move the bees in and out of the hive structure.

After researching the structure of a bee, I had to plan the pattern. The materials were important, to represent the different textures and nature of a bee's body and wings, but also needed to be strong enough to withstand handling. This project was completed by machine and by hand. The bees measure 40 inches long.
