Little Manhattan


I’ve never seen any City re-created like this, but through my research on New York for a project, I came across an article by Komal Sharma on Metropolis Magazine which presented a spectacular sculpture called ‘Little Manhattan’ by Yutaka Sone in which he has crafted out of a single piece of marble an amazing replica of the entire City.

This beautiful art piece plays with both scale & perception as I find myself scanning back & forth between the detail of the miniature city-scape & the way the ‘island’ falls away into what is in reality the surrounding waters edge.
