Netherlands: Nefertiti bust made from honey beeswax displayed in Amsterdam

A Nefertiti bust and several sculptures made from beeswax are on display at Rademaker Gallery in Amsterdam, as seen on Tuesday.

Slovak artist Tomas Libertiny used 60,000 honeybees to make the beeswax bust of Nefertiti titled 'Eternity.' It is based on a 3D model of the original bust of the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten.

"Most people react that they could not think about a piece made with honey bees so beautiful so well made so actually they are surprised, most of the time they are surprised," said Rademaker Gallery founder Pien Rademaker.

Another sculpture displayed is the Brutus bust, the Roman senator accused of assassinating Julius Caesar, on top of a Coca-Cola box.

Rademaker explained, "He tries to connect the natural with a very big contradiction of Coca-Cola like it's sugar water."

The gallery is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19 restrictions.
