About the song of the bees lies on the ground like a carpet, consisting of many pieces of beeswax, which were indivi- dually chopped off from large cast moulds. The structure of the beeswax shows so-called BeĢnard cells, which were for- med by thousands of molecules during the cooling process.
The arrangement of the parts is based on a sonogram showing an electrostatic pattern of a beehive. Based on this pat- tern, the state of health of the colony can be deduced.
