Akinobu Izumi And Tiny World In A Bottle

by Sherry Riter in Art  

Since the world is ending on 12/21/2012, I thought I would share with you another world. Yes, another world. It is called a Tiny World In A Bottle.

Japanese artist, Akinobu Izumi, designs architectural models professionally and in his spare time creates the art he calls, “Tiny World In A Bottle.” It is definitely tiny!

So with the world ending (rolling eyes), I thought we could freeze a few enjoyable moments in a tiny bottle…

Do you think Akinobu Izumi could save time in a bottle too?

Ahhhh, I can hear Jim Croce singing.

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then…

I really love the ones that have water! It looks so real!

I think I should first say…I’m here and so is the rest of the world. With that said I loved the pictures of the tiny bottles. Time in a Bottle was one of my favorite songs in High School. Awesome memory. Marie

LOL I’m still here too! So when are we supposed to all disappear because in six hours, it will be a new day! LOL

I’m glad you enjoyed the memories. 🙂

Beyond my capability with the shaky hands…

Beyond my ability too. My hands have always been shaky. I think it is just my excited soul has a hard time staying contained in my body. LOL LOL
