The Bee Dance - Die Bienentanz-Skulptur, Hohen Neuendorf bei Berlin.

There is a bee research institute in the town, das Länderinstitut für Bienenkunde (whose director is appropriately Kaspar Bienefeld)

Hohen Neuendorf e.V. hence the subject for the sculpture outside the commuter S-Bahn station.

The institute is housed in a beatiful building but photography is impossible due to a dense grove of trees in front of it. There is an open day this coming weekend (end August 2010) Artists Christine Gersch and Igor Jerschov.

The Bienentanz-Skulptur was unveiled on 23 June 2009 and is 2.5 m high, weights 2.5 tons and is made of brass, steel and thousands of tiny mosaic pieces.
