Isn’t that awesome and beautiful? Do you think he likes to play God by looming over it and yelling at all the tiny people in a really deep voice?

Imaging it that would have been your grandfather … nice doll ‘house’ ..
These little houses (as in madurodam) still kinda intrigue me. Me and my cousin go peek inside, both equally interested.
No, it is not the same as what this guy did ofcourse .. but reminded me .. Anyhow, like it way better than these ships and such some people make, matter of personal taste.

We all do an attempt on the beach ofcourse, but it wont make it to this blog ofcourse ..

My first reaction was to exclaim “jesus christ!” How appropriate.

Seriously, religious hooey aside, what an absolutely breathtaking structure. I mean the real thing, when it stood in ancient times… I had no idea it was that impressive. Of course the model is absolutely out of this world in and of itself. All that painstaking research and work does seem a bit insane, yet what a beautiful result. Though the model’s not for sale I hope it is eventually passed on to people who can preserve and display it so that many can enjoy its artistic and educational value.
