New "cosmic" bee habitat sculpture

I'm putting the finishing touches on this piece made of recycled wood and steel.  The steel bits are mostly saw blades and gears, plus random fittings.  It stands 9.5 feet tall when installed; the wooden part is 6 feet alone.

I'd done a similar commission piece and wanted to make another.  And I hope I'll find more of the steel parts so I can do another some day.

The bee tunnels will be in the back and sides.  I don't want to add them yet, lest the bees start using them - they're very active now.
