Sometimes a scene is so beautiful, people wish they can hold it in the palm of their hand -- or better yet place it in a pocket to be enjoyed again and again; that's exactly what people can do with the work of Dina Brodsky. Dina Brodsky creates meticulously detailed paintings on circular plexiglass surfaces that are no more than two inches in circumference.

In spite of the small size, Dina Brodsky's paintings can take anywhere between 15 and 20 hours to complete. My Modern Met writes that "she sources inspiration from Italian Renaissance fresco paintings, 15th-century Flemish portraits, and Islamic miniature art. When combined, all three of these techniques culminate in paintings that appear to be from another time period."
