Comb or Art?

When I bought the hive, the previous owner had moved a piece of "problem" comb to the back of the hive. My better half is a science teacher and as soon as she saw it thought it would be good to show the children at school something of the secret life of bees. 

She is now armed with this beautiful creation and a few dead bees (drones and a couple of workers) collected from outside of the hive. This and use of the school microscope will hopefully open the eyes of a few of the children to a fascinating new world!
