Tokyo-based artist and architectural model maker, Akinobu Izumi, has created the series “A Tiny World in a Bottle”. Using intricately cut paper, little pieces of cork and when necessary, liquid paraffin for a floating effect, he fills thumb-size bottles with creatures, ships and curious scenes. He sells a variety of these miniature works of art in his Etsy shop.
