Utah, the Beehive State, is a pretty damn patriarchal place – but The Secret of the Bees reminds us that bees have a Queen, not a king. The Bee Goddess doesn’t care about your ideology. Her massive, hive-shaped body is big enough to house not only a recursive image of herself (with herself again reiterated within her

Her incredibly large breasts represent the milk-and-honey of the good life. In the post-Mormon counterculture, Utahns have kept the community spirit but ditched the patriarchy.
