Saturday afternoon I was poking around at Flickr, looking for backgrounds as I do from time to time when I act as though I don’t have hundreds of unfinished collages to work on before I continue accumulating material… when I found this adorable image.
PetitPlat is the miniature work of Stéphanie Kilgast, tiny foodstuffs, dollhouse accouterments, jewelry, all representing things on a very small scale, and perfectly adorable. Upon seeing the image I instantly thought of this collage by Gcode, one of the best shrunken-man images in the history of ever.
If you look at Ms. Kilgast’s gallery you will find photos of little dolls arranged together with the play food in a little kitchen or a tiny table, but I prefer to imagine a shrunken man that sleeps in the nude and wakes up to a delicious morning meal served in a bitty tray and brought to his doll-sized bed by the woman that owns him, keeps him and feeds him.
He’s lucky indeed.
