Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders shares the work of Japanese model artist Akihiro Morohoshi who, after years of making traditional model railroads, decided to switch things up by creating awesomely detailed miniature railroad dioramas atop and inside everyday objects such as cans of Pringles, matchboxes, gumball machines and electric guitars.

To make the scenes look good as a whole, Morohoshi had to pay attention to every minute details of his pieces: from the custom-made signs and vehicles, to the weathering of each object to make them look lifelike.

Visit Akihiro Morohoshi’s website to check out more of his marvelous miniature railway scenes, preferably while you have some Pringles in hand because those particular models make us hungry for chips.

Japanese artist Akihiro Morohoshi put a twist on his usual work by embedding the miniature scenes in everyday objects. In his playful works of art, tiny and quaint worlds sit atop and inside discarded Pringle chips cans, matchboxes, guitars, and candy vending machines.


Miniature Scenes Of Imaginary Worlds Built On Top Of Everyday Objects

Japanese model artist Akihiro Morohoshi has created a series of miniature dioramas on top of everyday objects.  He sets scenes of imaginary worlds on top of Pringles chips cans, electric guitars, in matchboxes and on a guitar—every object in the model is custom-made to make them look life-like.
