Aganetha Dyck

Canadian artist Aganetha Dyck collaborates with bees to create sculptures that explore the relationship between humans and pollinators. With the use of special apiaries, Dyck gives object to bees for them to sculpt on. The work's final form is dependent on the initial object, much the way people have been dependent on bees to pollinate our crops.

"The question I ask is: 'What are the ramifications to all living beings should honeybees disappear from earth?' " Dyck told TreeHugger in an email.

The sculpture shown above is from the series titled "The MMasked Ball."
