Maico Akiba, an artist from Japan, is more famous for the “100 years later” project, a series of objects painted to look like a hundred years old.

However, the project that caught my attention is “SEKAI“, which means “World” in Japanese. In this art project, the artist adds miniature ecosystems on the back of animal toys, a reminiscence of Noah’s ark in which animals carry on the world on their back.

The designs are incredibly details and execution is nearly perfect. The animals were also released as small keyholder toys, but it lost a lot of details.
