Ant's Bee (Print)

Regular price $15.00

This cute, simple little honey bee is accentuated by a quote attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci (I believe the font is Leonardo Hand F):
"The men of experiment are like the ant; they only collect and use. But the bee . . . gathers its materials from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but transforms and digests it by a power of its own."
-Leonardo da Vinci

The original piece is done in watercolor and pencil on rag paper, measuring 11" x 7". This is a one-of-a-kind original painting. The original work was done for the nursery of a beloved friend, but I thought it'd make a nice contribution to the Bee Charitable section of my shop. ;)

This print (THIS LISTING IS FOR THE PRINT, NOT THE ACTUAL PAINTING) measures 12" X 8" (the painting has a 1/2" white border). It is a lovely reproduction of the original work, on photo matte paper. This listing is for the print only, no frame or matting will be included. It will be shipped in a plastic sleeve and sturdy cardboard mailer.

20% of the proceeds for this piece will be donated to The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees. ($3 will be donated for this print.) Check the Bee Charitable section of my shop for more Honey Bee benefiting items ;)
