These intricately designed, hand-made creations look like they’d be right at home in a Studio Ghibli production or fantasy game.
Using natural objects, along with model-making materials like faux moss, Amsterdam-based artist and graphic designer Rosa de Jong has been making detailed, lifelike works of art by hand for her series “Micro Matter”.
While each miniature model is of the artists own imagination, they look like they could be straight out of One Piece or Studio Ghibli’s Laputa: Castle in the Sky.

Each individual detail is painstakingly added by hand, and the finished island is then suspended within a glass test tube, creating a fantastical floating world all its own.
