Spirit of the Beehive

It has a pungent smell and is stinking up my studio room so yesterday I dove in. I drew in a wasp as I think that’s what may have occupied it, but I’m not sure. Even though it smells I don’t think I can throw it out. Maybe a layer of acrylic spray would seal it. Anybody know what kind of bees lived here?
Here is the nest:

    No idea about the bees. But I’ll be curious if anyone else knows! A challenging subject for artwork. Love your colors.
