The Greatest Little Show On Earth

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.

  1. I agree! I for one would be fascinated to see some exploration of what is actually happening in these exhibits. What a marvellous place to visit. It would be good to zoom in and look at the smaller scenes within.

  2. Reblogged this on The World of Georgina McClure and commented:
    If I had the skills I can imagine setting up space at Bancroft to establish a studio where I patiently made 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 the fine detail.
