X'fadal minn Naħla
X'fadal minn Naħla is an artwork by Enriqué Tabone and consists of a giant bee sculpted in transparent plexiglass. The main aim of this work is to raise awareness about the central role of bee culture in human culture.
The bee is prevalent in Maltese culture, evidenced by the fact that it is the honey bee that was selected to adorn the 3 mils coin between 1972 and 2006. Today the honey bee is an underrated Maltese icon, and the ultimate aim of such art installation is to raise some awareness about its former glory and grant it its well deserved share in public discourse.

- 25th January to 7th April 2019: Art from the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Collection: Documenting 2013-2018, held at Spazju Kreattiv;
