Bigger is better? Not for this spectacle of art.
This aesthetic focuses on the art form of regular everyday things in an irregular size – specifically, incredibly small. These tiny replicas, despite being tiny, manage to draw in more attention than it they do at their regular size. For example, yesterday’s lunch? Already forgot. But take a gander at these miniature foods created from polymers and clay. Most of these are creations available on etsy, but these wonders are free to gazed at in awe.

Food is one the most common miniaturized items popularized on etsy, pininterest, and tumblr. Often they are sold as jewelry such as cheesecake dangling from earrings, or a string of doughnuts on a necklace. However, nearly anything small has the aura of this cute aesthetic. Mini books, games, boats, vehicles, trees… There are multitudes upon multitubes of examples of miniature replicas with this aesthetic. Most of these can be found in doll houses, but doll houses are their own form of aesthetic.
Part of what is so incredible about these extremely small replicas is the amount of time and effort that is poured into their creation. Detail is often more difficult to achieve at these tiny scales where the single incorrect flick of the wrist with a paintbrush may demolish a large portion of the final product. In the case of the origami, paper becomes increasingly harder to fold accurately when it is small and nearly impossible to direct the location of the crease to the correct spot.
*I would like to note that the mini playstation even has a youtube video of its creation.
All we need is a tiny screen and it’s game on.
And you thought normal origami was hard. 
I don’t even know how to regular-size crochet. 
Here is a shout-out to an incredible creation where one artist used the tips of pencils to make miniature carvings. Since these are carved by hand, these pencils are also extremely delicate. Tools need to be specialized for their creation, and often magnifying glasses may need to be worn to simply even make sure the curve is to scale. One especially amazing thing this artist accomplished was carving chains from the graphite since he had to literally carve the chains to be connected rather than carve out the individual links and piece them together.
I don’t even have anything witty to say for this caption. Check out the link for more of this art, it’s amazing. 
So far all of the examples have been items or products. However, tiny things are not limited to just inanimate objects – even small animals carry the aesthetic of being, well, small. Often baby animals are adored for their small size. Considering deeper, perhaps small things carry a wisp of that innocence associated with babies and newborn creatures. We as humans like to protect the young, vulnerable, and innocent – perhaps we are prone to cherishing small items also due to this subconscious association? While you’re thinking, feel free to be distracted by these tiny animals.
Honestly I never thought I would say “awwwww” to a snake. But…. awwwwww. 
Tiny objects aren’t just an aesthetic – they are also pop culture. A meme stemmed from unusually small objects popularized on the internet goes “What is this? A ____ for Ants?”. The origin of this meme is from the movie Zoolander when the character Derek Zoolander says, “What is this? A center for ants?”.  This quote become parodied across the internet as a comment toward any tiny replica of a normally larger item, except the word center is replaced by the item name. The subreddit /r/thingsforants is named after this meme but also contains posts and submissions from reddit users of their own photos of tiny things. If you haven’t had your fill of tiny things, feel free to roam the top of that subreddit. http://geyserofawesome.com/post/90771590487/the-department-of-teeny-weeny-wonders-cant-stop  Mini Playstation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxqGocd7FsM  http://www.theredheadriter.com/2012/02/nano-origami-by-artist-anja-markiewicz/  https://www.etsy.com/listing/247917369/micro-octopus-stuffed-animal-tiny?ref=shop_home_active_14  http://creativepool.com/magazine/inspiration/incredible-lead-pencil-sculptures.2235  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apLcA9nANy0  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ-8IuUkJJc (What is this?
