“Melissa” Amigurumi

5.60

Melissa means “bee” in Greek , this was the name of a nymph that cared for young Zeus in Greek mythology by feeding him with honey. Bees are very important insects, we wouldn’t be capable to survive without them and life in Planet Earth would be a disaster. Albert Einstein said that we just could live around 4 years, due that, without bees,  there is not pollination, no grass, no animals, no humans. 90% of foods worldwide are provided by just 100 kind of crops. From those, 71 are pollinated by bees.
