From a single pumpkin seed to delicate butterfly wings, no canvas is too teeny for micro artist Hasan Kale. The talented — not to mention patient — artist paints realistic renderings of his hometown of Istanbul on unexpected objects.
Kale’s unique oeuvre sets the artist apart from other miniature mavens dealing in more traditional canvases.
"The Swallow’s Nest (Russian: Ла́сточкино гнездо́, Lastochkino gnezdo, Ukrainian: Ластівчине гніздо, Lastivchyne hnizdo)is a decorative castle located at Gaspra, a small spa town between Yalta and Alupka, on the Crimean Peninsula. It was built between 1911 and 1912, on top of the 40-metre (130 ft) high Aurora Cliff, in a Neo-Gothic design by the Russian architect Leonid Sherwood for the Baltic German oil millionaire Baron von Steingel."
