We’re all put here on this planet, such a tiny thing, truly. This tiny Earth, in the midst of an ever-larger universe. We were put here for reasons unbeknownst to us, reasons that may not even exist. And, above all that, we try so hard. People work to discover things, to try to create the greatest new thing, to learn everything, to find answers. But those answers are pointless.

Look at yourself from the space! You are very little, you are so tiny! But there is something big in you: Your extraordinary thoughts! Indeed, even from the space they look huge in light of the fact that they have the ability to change the universe, to change the space!

It all starts with a tiny, stupid idea, then one thing leads to another, and suddenly, you find something amazing and that’s: Madproject‘s #Miniature.

A small design tribute to a TV series called Game of thrones, this series has picked more character-based storyline, focusing on fleshing out their identities and putting the story second. This is the USP that holds viewers.

Also some of the characters make you relate yourself, specially Arya Stark, Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, Jamie Lannister and the list goes on.

The viewers who are whining that characters have not showed up to their potentials, Whilst occasions like the Red Wedding, the Purple Wedding and Tyrion’s trial demonstrated how fruitful this act was.
