Who Has the Largest Hornet Nest Sculpture in the World?


Yoshikuni Shiozawa of Nagano, Japan made a Mount Fuji model measuring 3.766 m (12.25 ft) high and 4.8 m (15.6 ft) wide at the base by joining together 160 hornet nests, containing an estimated 160,000 yellow hornets. Shiozawa is the owner of a hornet museum named Hachi-Tengoku, meaning "Paradise for Hornets", and has created three previous hornet sculptures. All the hornets inside the combined nests live together without conflict as one giant hive.
