By Etsy artist Paul Distelzweig. This free standing light sculpture stands 10.5 inches high with an 8 inch hexagonal footprint. The name Apis habilis is a combination of the species name for the honey bee (Apis mellifera) and the first tool using hominid (Homo habilis). Honey bees have a long association with humans and were brought wherever humans migrated. This complex relationship provides a starting point for the creation of the Apis habilis pieces.
