Among other things, dinosaurs are famous for the gargantuan sizes some of them reached, and that’s why the minuscule dinosaur skeleton sculptures created by Japanese artist Akinobu are so charming. Akinobu has taken some of the most famous dinosaurs, such as Tyrannosaurus and “Brontosaurus,” and squeezed them down into tiny, bottled reconstructions less than an inch in diameter. You can see the sculptures yourself at Tiny World in a Bottle.
