Hawke’s Bay artist Jil Sergent has unveiled her award-winning mural on the large roller door of Beagle’s Bees Honey Factory in the Onekawa industrial area in Napier.
Sergent was one of 10 winners from across the country who took out the top prize in Keep New Zealand Beautiful’s (KNZB) Resene Nature Murals Competition 2019.
The mural, titled “Stop Poisoning Paradise”, centres around the importance of bees within our whole ecosystem. In her submission Sergent outlined that poisons such as glyphosates are detrimentally affecting the entire ecosystem and the use of the word “why” is repeated in the outer circle to represent the mutation that bees are going through with sublethal poisoning.
