Here's A Miniature Manhattan Made Of Twigs, Leaves, And Grass

Celebrating its 20th holiday season this year, the New York Botanical Garden really outdid itself setting up its annual Holiday Train Show, complete with a gorgeously festive model of New York City. The mini- skyscrapers are constructed from twigs, leaves, berries, bark, and other found materials in the garden and, of course, Lady Liberty, also formed from all-natural materials, greets visitors in the entrance to the exhibit. Trains actually run over the bark Brooklyn Bridge past a Guggenheim made of fungi, and even the Metropolitan Museum of Art imagined as a mini, gingerbread-esque holiday mansion. The pint-sized, earthen Big Apple looks right at home in a lushly evergreen winter wonderland. Now we just need some elves. (Boing Boing)
