Superbly Sculptured Bonsai Trees and Miniatures

Hotel de Michelin image

These wonderful little creations were created by Japanese artist, Takanori Aiba, who builds miniature trees and other constructions onto platforms, rocks and other media. They are made form a variety of materials, including stone clay, paper, acrylic resin, steel wire and other recycled packaging. My favourite ones are the “Hotel de Michelin” one (above) and the Bonsai Tree at the end of this post. Which ones do you like?
