Prepare to have your perceptions challenged, as Sarah Mapelli Tink, a 45-year-old woman, has caused a stir on the Internet with her captivating photographs.
Referred to by some users as the “lady” or “queen of bees,” she eschews conventional clothing, opting instead for the company of 12,000 insects that envelop her.
The unconventional behavior may seem peculiar and somewhat foreboding to some, but Sarah firmly believes in the therapeutic and life-extending powers of bees.
Born in 2001, she exhibits an unusual fascination, asserting that she can tap into a unique energy emitted by the bees. Sarah contends that listening to the hum of the bees enables her to achieve a state of calm and focused mindfulness.
Despite being stung by the insects, Sarah remains unperturbed. While her unconventional interest has faced considerable opposition from the general public, she has taken her daily meditations and turned them into a performance.
Covered in insect-attracting oil, she dances in slow motion to soothing music, claiming that this ritual allows her to attain a state of enlightenment.
Sarah is convinced that the distinct energy she experiences is transferred to her audience, leaving them in a positive and uplifted state. Fans of Sarah’s unique approach can be found worldwide, with expectations that thousands will attend the live “Dance with the Bees” performances.
It’s intriguing to note that, owing to the close proximity of the bees to her body, one might not even realize that Sarah is not wearing a conventional tank top. For many, this unconventional art form is taken seriously, viewed as an authentic expression that transcends the boundaries of traditional artistic endeavors.
