Mini Manhattan Carved Out of 2.5 Tons of Marble by Yutaka Sone

“Little Manhattan” by Japanese artist Yutaka Sone is an exquisitely detailed 2.5 ton marble model of Manhattan. To ensure accuracy, Sone looked at photographs, satellite images from Google Earth, and flew over the city on helicopter rides to view the buildings, streets, bridges, and topographical nuances of the Big Apple. The eight foot long model is on display at the David Zwirner gallery in New York City through October 29, 2011.
