Bee-in-Time - Number 1 CL1 Clock


A floriferous rose design on this clock chimes out joyfully in lemon-pink hues, as tight to open buds clamber around the clock face. A drone can be found, nestled into the side of the clock, between rose and hive. Interestingly, Ingeborg Beling, a German ethnologist from the early 20th century, discovered that bees have a endogenous clock as described in her 1929 paper "Über das Zeitgedächtnis der Bienen" (“On the Time Memory of Bees”). The experiment was pretty simple: the scientist left sugar water outside a beehive every day at 4 pm. After several attempts, the bees started to leave the hive at 4pm even when there was no sugar water around.
