Didn't know what to expect but this was truly amazing. I am not a big museum/art gallery fan but enjoyed every second of this. True art; very interesting; I found it unbelievable that somebody could create something this small. Recommended.

Amazingly detailed micro miniatures. One more appealing than the other but nevertheless very nice to see. In the center they currently display quotes of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini as this subject was extensively studied by Mykola Syadistry. Unfortunately the quotes are in Russian. Fortunately...More
