Japanese artist Takanori Aiba creates amazingly detailed resin sculptures so elaborately detailed as to impart them with a Bottle City of Kandor-like habitability. "Bonsai-B," pictured above, looks like a small town built in the branches of a Bonsai tree. It elicits fond memories of Swiss Family Robinson and Tarzan, which among my favorite movies as a kid. Takanori says that he draws inspiration from his background as a maze illustrator for for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE.
