Mini Manhattan Carved by Japanese Artist Yataka SonePosted: September 29, 2011
I recently read an article on this artist and could not wait to share him with you. Recently put on display at the David Zwirner gallery in New York, Japanese Artist Yataka Sone used photographic reproductions, imagery from Google Earth, and several helicopter rides to painstaking recreate Manhattan in marble. Every detail (Central Park, skyscrapers, streets, avenues, and the bridges to the east and west) was recreated to scale. Read the article here.
