Best of Show - Fantasy / MFCA 2104

For me Jules Vern is the ORIGINAL FANTASY ARTIST!
He was a great mind… the things he imagined were fiction then, but now they are real… so this miniature is a tribute to him

I imagine him as a mechanic /scientist / author - GENIUS… If he had a bicycle it would be mechanical one, ridding in high speed at the streets of Paris with his notes. (The sewer lid and the newspaper are exactly as they were at the 1880’s in Paris)

Scale: 65mm
