Bee Habitat Sculptures by Zen-Industrial

These garden sculptures by artists Greg Corman and Tidi Ozeri are green for a number of reasons. First of all, they're made from recycled wood and steel. But what we really appreciate is how they help bees ...

The sculptures are meant to serve as a habitat for native bees. According to the Zen-Industrial site, the sculptures are intended "as habitat for stingless, solitary, native bees that are critical pollinators and occur across the US and in many other countries. The US has more than 4000 species of native bees! Many of them lack habitat for nesting in urban landscapes."

And, on top of all of that, the sculptures are beautiful. They all have a weathered, aged look, as though they've been sitting in a garden for ages. We'd love to have one in our yard.
