    Promised an amazing life filled with all they could ever want; all but the love of the man who promised he would be there. Women are treated like objects, just another pretty piece to fill a cold castle. They sit and wait for a man who is not coming home to them.

    All the rooms in these images are miniatures, photographed in the Art Institute of Chicago. We couldn't find any 3" tall women, so some compositing was necessary.

    Deep in the basement of the Art Institute of Chicago is a room full of miniatures. "The 68 Thorne Miniature Rooms enable one to glimpse elements of European interiors from the late 13th century to the 1930s and American furnishings from the 17th century to the 1930s. Painstakingly constructed on a scale of one inch to one foot, these fascinating models were conceived by Mrs. James Ward Thorne of Chicago and constructed between 1932 and 1940 by master craftsmen according to her specifications."
