Yesterday, the ladies in our house went on a little outing to a miniatures fair in Rondebosch.
We were intrigued by seeing things at 1/24th the usual size, and even some things at 1/144th the usual size!
|These little birds and animals were noteworthy for being so exquisitely done, and also for being the most expensive booth in the show.|
And then finally, back to the lady with the exquisite birds. I heard her say a clock like this sold for $1500.00 in America and truly, her work was exceptional. I think it's usually easier to make miniatures of man-made stuff than to make correct miniatures of things straight from Creation. I think when you try to copy the Lord's things He has made, it can be a way of praising him. My Gram used to say, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein." Ps. 24:1
In trying to imitate Creation in a small way, I gain a new appreciation for how hard it is. "I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."
