The playful miniature sculptures of Kendal Murray, an artist hailing from Australia, will take anyone down an imaginative journey. Made using classic diorama figurines, she puts them in unique everyday situations while cleverly using ordinary objects such as compact mirrors, mixing bowls and even coin purses. She somehow manages to see beyond their practical purpose in order to envision these playful miniature sculptures.

About her playful miniature sculptures, the artist shares, "The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts."
