If I had the skills I can imagine setting up space at Bancroft to establish a studio where I could patiently make miniatures. Alas, I am a big picture person and often miss the finer detail. I confess I was in awe of the stunning miniaturist exhibits featured here. Aside from the whole scene, there are so many stories to be told in fine detail. I may take some time to examine the detail in this Enchanted Realm.

At The Crossroads

When I was little, one of my favorite museums to visit was  Miniature World in Victoria, BC Canada.

I would spend an eternity in front of each display with no fixed idea in my head about what I was seeing. I would just imagine the little figures actually dancing, or running or sitting or riding horses.

Of course, I was a little on the macabre side as a child so I assumed that spirits and ghosts and maybe even a curse or two were involved because WHY NOT.

Here are some pictures I took of a couple of the exhibits- I think that after all of these years I should put some thought into what is happening here and why.
