Recently, the Rijksmuseum acquired a sculpture of a screaming child created by Hendrick de Keyser (1565-1621), who is considered one of the foremost 17th-century Dutch sculptors. The small head, which is carved in wood, is a particularly expressive depiction of a screaming child being stung by a bee on his forehead and alludes to a well-known story from the ancient classics in which Cupid, the god of love, is chased and stung by a bee after stealing honey from a beehive. www.rijksmuseum.nl

The name Deborah was the ancient Jewish name for the bee priestess, who often functioned as a prophet. Possibly related to the cult of Artemis, this “epiphany” of the Bee could be the Goddess herself as a bee, a representation of the Queen Bee, or the priestess in a trance shapeshifting into the object of vereration.
