I never thought I’d see a grown man spraying silicone on a statue of Ganesh at a church in Santa Fe but then again, it IS Santa Fe. And these WERE your usual bunch of iconoclastic beekeepers.
The Ganesh-sprayer in question was Steve Walls of Buckin’ Bee, demonstrating how he makes his own wax candle molds for beeswax candles that ahem… sell well in Santa Fe, the epicenter of alternative thought. Steve may have been the day’s comic relief but the headliner was scientific beekeeper Randy Oliver, flown in from CA for our New Mexico seminar.
Here are just a few photos of the rodeo.
