Behold: Skyville – a meticulously crafted 90x40cm miniature village by Bulgarian artist Ognyan Stefanov, who creates these and other lavish architectural wonders in his spare time between stints as an aviation photographer.

Tiny, biologically accurate sculptures of birds and animals by Hungarian biologist and miniaturist Fanni Sandor.

But you don’t care about that. Because you only hear the sound of her name.
