The Best City Miniature In The World

Actually I want to write about this topic for a long time ago. And I think this is the best moment for me. Beside that I have to collect more information and research about this. I really liked something about miniature. And I had write on hubpages about very talented person in building miniature. And I get many responses from hubbers.

This hub talking about the city miniature. City miniature for me is like a beautiful art work. This is  combination of art, design and architecture concept. And I think only talented people  and have a sense of art can made this beautiful thing. They must be patient in building a city miniature. I post about the best city miniature around the world. Why I like this collection, because we can find the different style in making of the city miniature. It represent the culture and the different building comes from various city. 

The best part of this miniature is the similar with the real city. It looks very detail, complete with the vehicle. It look the real city with the small shape. And using a specific scale. It made us to see it closely and touch the detail of this miniature. I hope you can enjoy the picture below.

Miniature of Moscow city, it sold with the price $3 million

Do you want to buy miniature of Moscow City offered with a price of $ 3 million? This is beautiful miniature which ever sold. It need 300 people to construct the Moscow city model. Around 400 square foot. This miniature very detail with scaled down version of Moscow in 1977. Look at the picture below.

Another miniature of Moscow city

A Miniature (model) of Moscow City displayed on Moscow exhibition. This miniature was made in 1988 and has been used for the Moscow City Administration. Each building is a separate section and always cleaned and polished to keep looking good and durable.  If a building renovated the same new model is also made in this miniature. I think this miniature is a part of the Moscow history. This miniature using scale 1: 500. I hope you enjoy the picture below.

Mini City of Sweetness

This miniature was build by Meschac Gaba. He is very talented person, he got the idea from the sugar, And all his miniature made by sugar. The city miniature of few cities in the world it shown in the exhibition called the Port City in the Greenland street gallery (Liverpool). This miniature contain with landmark from the city around the world like aj Mahal, Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, the London Eye, Petronas Towers, the Reichstag , Empire State Building, and many more.There are 600 buildings which measures 30 feet by 20 feet and it took two years to build. Wow...amazing of art work. Please take a look!

Beijing Olympics

I like LEGO very much and I am a big fans of LEGO. It started from I was kid. But with the expensive price at that time. So having a LEGO is like a dream. And my interesting of LEGO never stop until my age right now. This company was hypnotized many children around the world with the greatest toys, including me. They created many creative toys, so the children have to build this toys become a wonderful shape. The good thing why I like this toys is we can create our imagination and most of LEGO toys have theme. If I have a kid, I'll buy this one.

During the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, LEGO User Group in Hong Kong, has created a stunning reproduction of a city that represents the next Olympics, made entirely of LEGO. Consists of 300.00 mini bricks with 4500 figures. The city has a sports complex, swimming arena, and housing. Look the picture below.

Madurodam

I can't wait to read this section. This is the best section of the city miniature. I know most of us familiar with this miniature. Madurodam is a miniature city located in Scheveningen, The Hague, Netherlands. This is a model of a Dutch town with a 1:25 scale, composed of typical buildings and landmarks which we can found in various locations in this country. Madurodam become an recreational place, where many tourist from around the world visiting this place. They saw the beautiful of Netherlands landmark in small shape. I hope I can visit this place someday. It also become my dream, traveling around Netherlands and visit Madurodam.

A little history of Madurodam

Madurodam was built in 1952 and has been visited by tens of millions of people since then. The city was named with George Maduro, a student from Curaçao who died at the Dachau concentration camp in 1945 and her parents donated money to start the Madurodam project.On July 2, 1952, the daughter of a young Beatrix was appointed mayor of Madurodam, and then doing city tour. When Beatrix became queen of the Netherlands, he came down position. As mayor of Madurodam is elected by a youth organization in the city consisting of 25 students from the region.

    I will never get bored to say that I love art. The beautiful of art came from various shape. An art not always a painting and sculpture but all the things which wonderful shape and we enjoy it, this one of the criteria of art. Now I'll write about another art shape. I think we all familiar with this name. "Miniature", something small but makes curious. Only people who have the sense of art and high patience can make a beautiful miniature.
  • London Made By Fruits and Vegetables

    I like performing arts. Like architecture, decoration, interior and exterior design, and another art. Food can be made become a beautiful art. We all know that fruit and vegetables have beautiful color. And those color is not artificial but real from nature. From fruit and vegetables we can create beautiful art. We can find it in the wedding, birthday party, another important events. Like Christmas, valentine day, Halloween. This big event used this art usually held on Hotel.

That is definitely art. Hollywood is probably the hub of miniature construction. Every science fiction action flick uses some of them.

You always seem to come up with some of the best ideas for hubs and this one is no different. One of the reasons why we're so fascinated by miniatures iis due to the fact that in each of us, we're still kids at heart. Better still is our ability to appreciate the hard work, dedication, and imagination of others. Awesome hub.
