The idea that big is always better needs not apply when checking out the work of artist Akinobu. The miniature worlds encapsulated within each of these Akinobu creations represent utopian beliefs and idealistic imagery.

Looking through the micro worlds mimicked by Akinobu, it is clear he has a keen eye for detail and an undeniable amount of patience. The work of this Japanese architect can be found for sale on the popular website Etsy, where the Akinobu glass-bottle universes are in abundance!

Implications - The common belief that bigger is better proves not only to be false within contemporary society, but impractical as well. Consumers now prefer to indulge in miniature products that offer portability and space-efficiency -- just as these minute glass bottle universes by 'Akinobu' do.
