Tiny Worlds Trapped in Tubes

What is it about miniature things that is so fascinating? Tiny dogs that fit in purses, baby shoes, and these meticulously crafted buildings and immaculate landscapes living inside of test tubes.
From artist Rosa De Jong out of Amsterdam, Micro Matter is a triumph of skill – (seemingly) massive human hands, creating intricate, narrow structures.

Besides the marvel of the complex, miniature compositions, these are beautiful juxtapositions of human structures and nature—all preserved in a tiny glass tube.

The whimsy and impossibility of these scenes make them enchanting—a towering human world, teetering on a tiny bit of earth.
