In “Portrait with Bees”, Alexander Dedov reveals the idea of impersonal, "sexless" modern man, whose existence is like the life of a bee in a huge beehive. The role of the beehive here is played by urban residential areas. The subject of the portrait can be described as a loss of self-identity under the pressure of the cultural code of society.
The sculptor interprets the metal frame of the portrait as the iron fetters of human consciousness, which imprison the Personality and deprive it of all identity.
