smallest in the world!

Dimitrios (ATHENS, Greece) on 1 March 2013 in Art & Design.

well, that what they say in the basket museum in Thraki. It has a height of approximately 8mm. They are very proud for it. But it was made by a German and the museum bought it from him.

Lovely shot of this cute looking basket !! I remember seeing long ago in a Science Magazine, the photograph of a German engineer with a pair of shoes he had made for a beetle like insect !!!
