Artist David Beck

Artist David Beck was commissioned to create MVSEVM to commemorate the reopening of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in July of 2006. Inspired by the American Art Museum's Patent Office Building, the model opens to reveal miniature artifacts and artworks as well as drawers containing hidden treasures.

He is a modern Renaissance man!! How fantastic to create such a masterpiece..it reminded me of the Cabinet of Curiosities in Terry Pratchett's discworld novels. Quite wonderful - thank you so much for posting it :)
