When you visit Chinese garden as call Yuanlin, you will realize that there are many Penjing and Taihu stone interspersed around.
Those are microcosm has been contained in the Yuanlin as a universe.
However, Yuanlin also can be said a microcosm has been contained in the real universe as long as it is a garden which shrieked the environment in the real world.
I use the method of those nested structures mixed up with the tropicals as an imitation in a shopping mall and some relics from 80-90s to express the euphoric fictional utopia with using fictional method of Japanese painting.
