These Black Mago creations take the miniature boat in a bottle concept to new extremes as popular cartoon characters are encapsulated in a container no larger than an American quarter. What's even more impressive is that Black Mago even takes the time to create fleshed out settings for these mini dioramas. Look on as Nyan Cat flies through space or the character of Tonari no Totoro chills under a tree.

Black Mago is a Peruvian artist and I'm simply stunned at how he was able to craft such intricate models of my favorite characters. I don't think I'd have the patience to do such detailed sculpting using only a pair of tweezers.
