Miniature Museum: Exploration #9

Here I go again! It's time for the ninth exploration from the book, How To Be An Explorer Of The World: Portable Art Life Museum by Keri Smith. This task was made super easy thanks to my mom. She collected miniatures for most of her life, and last year she gave the collection to me.

Exploration #9


Collect only very small things. Store them in a mint tin or small box.

I selected my favorites from my mom's vast mini collection along with a few small objects I found. I wanted to use only her miniatures but I thought I better put a little effort into the assignment too.

I used a box I've toted around with me since I was a kid. It has a unicorn on the top. As a little girl I was obsessed with horses, pegasus, and unicorns.

The box

Then I added the miniatures.

Little Things

Finally, I arranged them for my museum.

My dream is to walk around the world. A smallish backpack, all essentials neatly in place. A camera. A notebook. A traveling paint set. A hat. Good shoes. I don't want to trudge up insane mountains or through hill and dale. But now I walk everywhere in the city. Any city. You see everything you need for a lifetime. -Maira Kalman
