Solar powered bee wrought macro.
The Bee Lantern is a large-scale bee sculpture wrought in Dead Puppet Society’s signature laser cut style. Boasting a 3.7m wingspan and standing 3m tall, the sculpture expands the micro to the macro and is powered by the sun.
By day The Bee Lantern is black stained ply and frosted acrylic, providing an opportunity for the West Village community and visitors to get up close, encouraging an examination of the sculpture and its fascinating insect anatomy on an enormous scale.
By night, The Bee Lantern transforms, illuminating across a spectrum of colours and patterns inspired by the plethora of Queensland bee species.
Created specifically for Bee Month 2021 for The Common at West Village, The Bee Lantern is a celebration of the incredible diversity of bees and their importance as pollinators within our environment.
