Tiny Tourist Attractions

by Colleen Clark

The Eiffel Tower. The Taj Mahal. Big Ben. The world's most impressive monuments tower over us, their sheer size and majesty inspiring awe and wonder. A select few have been so captivated by these soaring monoliths that they have decided to make them their own, imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, and all. The result? A world of wee landmarks that both tip their hat to and give us a new perspective on some of the globe's most iconic sites. From a Lego Mount Rushmore to a tiny homage to Graceland, these mini monuments prove that the best (or at least some rather amusing) things really do come in small packages.
