Claudia Cardinale for The Leopard
Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns. This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide. The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.
Yes, you’re right, this outfit SHOULD be in my closets.
From Cromer’s Amateur Collection, Organ Grinder on Street with Children Passing, c.1848
