All Hail the Bee Goddess!
Isn't this a wonderful portrait of She who must surely be the Bee Goddess? Look at her gorgeous headdress, bee earrings and honeycomb dress! Now She graces the sidebar of my blog with Her sweetness.
I don't know the identity of the inventive artist who created this work but I found it posted over at Calvin's Canadian Cave of Cool last week.
LATE-BREAKING UPDATE: Many thanks to Diane at Always Crave Cute for discovering that the artist is Lea Bradovich, an American artist from Santa Fe, NM. Lea states on her website that:
My magical realist portraits depict a playful engagement with nature in her guise as the eternal feminine. Allegorical figures wear honeycomb garb, butterfly crowns, and caterpillar necklaces. Last summer's leaves are raiment for their decorative pleasure, metaphoric compost for the eye. Mythopoetic headgear is often entomological, hats display life cycles, food sources and sometimes predators as well.
