This is Maxim's Restaurant, a historical building as well as a restaurant in Paris. Famous for its "Art Nouveau" interior. Read about its history here.
However, this is not the Maxim's restaurant in Paris but a 1/12 replicate of the restaurant in Lyon's mini museum. 2700 hours of handi-work.
This museum in Lyon showcases some of the most impressive mini-replicates of interior architecture, from really tiny fruit basket to a whole library, down to the detail of every single book on the shelves.
It's not just places, here you can find a lot of tiny hand crafted items. Like this amazing paper cut-out.
Which is smaller than the size of a finger.
Or this Christmas tree...
crafted using a toothpick.
I'm posting some photos here to share. For the rest you can head to my Flickr or my facebook (if you're my friend) to see.
other uses for dead red ants. Yes, dress them up and let them perform. lol
how do you carve an eggshell? o.O
replicate of an actual prison (can't remember which)
a typical Parisian loft
I wonder how long they made these mini dinosaur fossils?!
how my house would look like if I were an artist in Paris.
how my room would look if I were a poor artist in Paris.

I so want to eat that strawberry cheesecake if it were real now. It looked so real! Though so tiny.
