Sir Edmund Hillary
With his brother Rex, Hillary became a beekeeper, a summer occupation that allowed him to pursue climbing in the winter. His interest in beekeeping later led Hillary to commission Michael Ayrton to cast a golden sculpture in the shape of honeycomb in imitation of Daedalus's lost-wax process. This was placed in his New Zealand garden, where his bees took it over as a hive and "filled it with honey and their young"
Not a lot of people know that.
Text info from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmund_Hillary Pic from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067128/. Sir Edmund looks an awful lot like Michael Caine. Shome mishtake, surely?
