Anastassia Elias’s Tiny World Inside Toilet Paper Tubes

French painter and collage artist Anastassia Elias creates tiny scenes with paper inside cardboard toilet paper tubes. Anastassia uses paper the same color as the cardboard tubes to build up the intricate pictures of people, which gives the illusion that the scene taking place inside the walls are actually part of the roll itself. The models, which sell for £90 each, come alive when light is shined through the roll from one end. The details and depth of each piece is impressive.

Tsingy: The Stone Forest of Madagascar

Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve is located close to the western coast of Madagascar. This 666 square kilometer region has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990 because of its unique, breathtaking geography, preserved mangrove forests, and wild bird and lemur populations.


The Grand Canyon of Verdon

The Verdon Gorge in south-eastern France has been dubbed the Grand Canyon of Verdon because of its topological similarities with the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River, United States. The Grand Canyon of Verdon is about 25 kilometers long and up to 700 meters deep and measures 200 to 1500 meters from one side of the Gorge to the other. It is formed the Verdon River, which is named after its startling turquoise-green colour, one of the canyon's most distinguishing characteristics. The most impressive part lies between the towns of Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, where the river has cut a ravine up to 700 metres down through the limestone mass. At the end of the canyon, the Verdon river flows into the artificial lake of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon.
