The 17-meter high sculpture consisting of 170,000 pieces of aluminum and has a shape similar to a beehive, was mounted at the Royal London Botanic Gardens (Kew Gardens) to draw attention to the disappearance of bees. According to studies, one in ten species living in Europe is endangered.

Conceived by British artist Wolfgang Buttress, the sculpture, which was presented to the public last year in an exhibition in Milan, Italy, will be located at the Botanical Garden London for 18 months. Inside, there are sound and visual effects that simulate a real hive. With great diversity of plants and flowers, the park also has apiaries for beekeeping.
