Vintage Ring Boxes Turned Into Detailed Historical Dioramas By Talwst

In an unexpected but effective mix of unlikely art mediums, Toronto-based artist Talwst has created a series of miniature dioramas inside of antique ring boxes. These miniatures capture a wide array of scenes from various historical periods.

According to the artist, the idea for this series of miniature dioramas came about when a street vendor in Paris handed him an antique ring box and told him “I want to see what you make with this.” Talwst created a scene of a figure emerging from the sea and has been creating these unique artworks ever since.

The antique nature of the small boxes he uses, as well as subtle details used in his tiny dioramas, help drive home his focus on history. “I want the viewer to open the box and feel they have been transported to another world,” he told the Guardian.

How did the artist create such small figures to fit in the scenes? What materials did he use? The scenes are wonderful-very creative!
