Bee Fairy Art Print
The Bee Fairy was the Queen of all bees and she had "a bee's body, a woman's face and talk. She reigned the wild bees in the depths of the forests, lurking in tree hollows. Their honey was food for the Forest Fairies and all the creatures with a deep respect for the bees." As the Romanian mythology explains, the bee is the insect which helped create the world, having pre-christian origins, like many other mythologic beings. Legends confirm the bee's intelligence, skill and hard work in organizing its life. Therefore, it is said the bee was the Creator's counselor, helping him to "better match" the edges of the sky and earth.
