Painted plaster model of Beehive dwelling found in the Hebrides. The name, Beehive Dwelling, is lettered on the front edge of the base, and S. Uist, Hebrides is lettered on side edge. To the back of model is a raised WPA District 15 keystone stamp.
Early form of this type of dwelling was found in the Hebrides off the coast of Scotland. Houses were built using the natural landscape with native stone for walls and turf for the roof. From a distance they appeared to be grassy hills. Similar structures are found in Ireland with a stone roof and in Turkey with a mud mixture for the roof.
