Spectacularly Detailed Dioramas Hidden Inside Vintage Ring Boxes

In Toronto-based artist Talwst’s dioramas, antique ring boxes become tiny theaters where spectacularly detailed scenes unfold on a miniature scale. The artist began his unique hobby when a vendor at a Paris market handed him an old ring box and said, “I want to see you do something with this.” Talwst turned it into a seaside scene featuring a woman in a black, vintage swimsuit, and his spectacular series was born. “I want the viewer to open the box and feel they have been transported to another world,” he says.
