"Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures"

I choose the Small Wounders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures. I picked this because it is very interesting for me. I like how it is craved and how it goes back in history about the story behind King Henry XIII and his wife and their divorce, leading to the foundation of Church of England. What's more interesting is that when I did my research about this is that they use a micro x-ray machine and they see the object in hand as a 2-d and the X-ray helps break down what's inside this object and how it was put together. Their work is tinny like 5 cm and you need to look closely at the item to be able to kind of see what's on there and sometimes it's hard to see without magnification.
