Episkapos, the elders, the pastors, the overseers of the colony who traverse the hive crosswise toward victory. The ploy of the bishop is reflected in uniquely designed cross patterned wings. The thorax is marked with a mitre style furrow common amoung the bishops of this classical game of chess. Add these teachers to your Beekeeper collection. Available in 14k yellow gold, sterling slilver, brass and bronze.

@RobTorres , @ViktorLambov Thank you guys for the compliments. I used a workflow between Maya and Z-Brush. Z-brush for the sculptural work and Maya for scale, posing and wings.
