Gregor Mendel in his Beehive

Gregor Mendel

This 2/3 size figure of Gregor Mendel was a commission. Clive Farrel wanted to create a centrepiece for the Leguminarium he was constructing in his large garden. Gregor Mendel sits in a stone beehive to celebrate his work on bee breeding in the center of a large circular garden planted entirely with members of the peas family in honour of his genetic discoveries on peas.
