Jim is correct. I have a beekeeper I know from Poland. She has a photo album of her travels to Poland, and they have very interesting bee houses. Some are huge animals carved into big logs, which are carved out and have bees going in places as example....a bears mouth. There is actually a bee museum in Poland (not sure where) that has collected and preserved some of them, with perhaps several dozens very ornate carved logged, houses, and figures. They are from years past, although the idea of a bee house is still utilized today. Many of them utilized the "leaf hive" approach of having frames pulled straight out the back.
