The work aims to suggest connections and plastic substance between ideational level apis mellifera civilization and 'human civilization'.

My intervention is justified by the Man–Nature vital relationship. The work Hive is part of a cycle where I tried to discover the various possibilities of artistic expression. I made these images both Symposiums wood and stone, and small works, using wood as a polychrome material and bronze.
The connections of Dinu Campeanu’s sculpture to ancient art on territory of this fertile area of civilization are not to be found in the shapes, but in a discreet and constant comment of meanings. The object, as a last stage in a long operation of idea – focusing,is,thus,presented with its own power of suggestion.
To this contributes an entire range of synthesis, carefully done in the meaningful field of ancient Romanian art, i.e.the art of sheperds and wood chisellers from long ago.
