Plaster Ceiling Bee Motif at Buckland Abbey

Buckland Abbey Bee Motif Ceiling

I found this searching for something else on the web on a personal blog titled For My Family.  It is a plaster ceiling in the Drake Chamber of Buckland Abbey, the home of Sir Francis Drake.  Through a little research online, I've learned that this plaster work was designed in the late 1980s and finished in 1998 by Jane Schofield in the Devon tradition of hand modeled lime plaster.  The original plaster ceilings were lost in a fire in the 1930s, and the design today was a completely new design.
Visit the Buckland Abbey website.
There are a couple more images here.
