Mini City of Sweetness

0

Artist Meschac Gaba imagined a city of sugar, and then built it.  He filled it with instantly recognizable landmarks from around the world, such as the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, the Sydney Opera House, the London Eye, Petronas Towers, the Reichstag, the Empire State Building, and more. There are 600 buildings in the fantasy city, which measures 30 feet by 20 feet and took two years to build.

The granulated cityscape was part of an exhibition called Port City at the Greenland Street gallery in Liverpool, England, last summer.

Yes, you can say it's a waste of sugar, but think how many children's teeth were saved from cavities!

I'm having flashbacks to fourth grade, when we had to build a model of a California mission out of sugar cubes. I still have issues with sugar cubes.
