Normally when we think of miniatures, we think of tiny tea sets and tiny pastries possibly designed by Polly Pocket. That is why when we saw the seedy tiled bathroom miniatures complete with realistic grime we could barely contain our excitement.

Designed by art students from China's Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts, this collection miniatures takes meticulous detail to new heights. The butcher shops are splattered with blood, the vegetables are beginning to wilt and the art studio is cluttered with unfinished masterpieces. These miniatures are ripe with gritty realism and will put your childhood dollhouse to shame. Seriously, they leave us tongue-tied.
