The Incredible Sculpture of Paris

 Paris is undoubtedly one of the world's best loved cities. It is a city that the majority of people fall head over heels in love with, but, this one artist takes his amour for the beautiful city a step further. Artist Gerard Brion loved the city so much, visiting it was not enough. So, he decided to create a miniature version of the French capital. The monument is so life-like, it'll almost have you fooled.
 
 
Gerard Brion spent 15 years creating this masterpiece, clocking in more than 20,000 hours.
