Designed by sculptor Richard Stringer and Architect Nonda Katsalidis, the giant bees are made from anodized aluminium sheet and their antennae and small legs are of cast aluminium. The sheets are riveted together using 110,000 anodized rivets. Special bolts known as 'Hollo Bolt' were used to fix these giant bees on the structural steelwork.
