Enter into a magical underwater world where a mermaid is able to prepare for close up glamour shots in her boudoir.
This delicate and miniature world fit for a sea-dwelling princess was created by artist Peter Gabel.
Extraordinary workmanship and marine inspiration has gone into this creation. Although custom built with love, sadly all of us mermaid admirers are forced to view from a distance – Peter isn’t making these magnificent creations en masse or to sell on Etsy. Instead I hope you enjoy this peek into this enchanted world within the bell jar, created using foraged items from the seashore.

If you enjoyed this post then you may find this one about tiny people and their adventures in fruit and vegetable worlds enjoyable, as well as this post and this one about tiny books. But for now I’m inspired to go to the beach, it’s summer at the moment in Australia!
