Apis


Apis

This is not a psychological painting based on the human mind – it’s actually quite the opposite.

The nymph is merely a humanoid personification of an aspect of nature – in this case, honeybees. She’s not meant to be seen as a being of singular consciousness, with her own thoughts or feelings, but rather something without any form of sapience. She literally has no mind – her existence is solely intertwined with the lives of the honeybees.
