Lilliput, Works of art from Cynthia von Buhler’s The Dollhouse Museum (MyMicroGallery --Milan, Italy)

Lilliput is the first land that Lemuel Gulliver visits in the book Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. The inhabitants, though human in form, are only six inches tall. Thus, the artwork in the show is in 1:12 scale, the size of most dollhouses. The curator Cynthia von Buhler ( builds dollhouses for her books and plays and is in the process of creating a New York City dollhouse museum which will house tiny artworks by renowned artists. Each artist in Lilliput was given a small frame to create unique art for this exhibit.
