Charming Paper Dioramas of Wes Anderson Films

For The Grand Budapest Hotel, director Wes Anderson used handmade miniature models to create a fictional landscape, capturing his characters’ world in fantastical, meticulous detail. The homespun aesthetic of the filmmaker’s eccentric, vintage-inspired movies naturally lends itself to the diorama, which is what Spanish artist Mar Cerdà uses to explore her own work and Anderson’s charming tales.

Cerdà creates miniature, painted paper characters and objects, recreating scenes from Anderson’s movies, including The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Darjeeling Limited, and The Royal Tenenbaums. Small-scale details like envelopes, books, curtains, and monogrammed luggage match the charms of Anderson’s quirky filmography.
