My Mom painted this clay figure in an adult daycare craft session a few years ago; it sat on her dresser, and when she passed away it was one of the few things I kept. It took me awhile, at first, to figure out this was a bee. Mom had her own ideas about art and turned this into a Mexican alebrije; her Mexican culture was shining right through! It now sits on my work computer monitor base.
