A full-fledged Tenenbaum.

Posted on

There's no question that Wes Anderson makes some of the most visually enticing films out there. Barcelona artist Mar Cerdà loves his work so much, that she transformed some scenes into mini papercut models.

Cerdà is an illustrator by profession, and making these tiny models is a hobby. She said she finds the exercise quite therapeutic.

"It’s like a kind of meditation where everything else disappears and I can’t think of anything else," Cerda told BuzzFeed.

Besides Margot's scene in the bathtub from The Royal Tenenbaums, Cerdà also brought the train carriage from The Darjeeling Limited to life.

Look how detailed it is!!!

Cerdà said the amount of time it takes to finish a single scene depends on how much detail is required.

"I spent around three weeks with the Darjeeling piece. All the wallpaper was hand painted."

It's all worth it though. The Darjeeling Limited is her favourite Wes Anderson film ever.

"I loved it the first time I saw it, and I fell in love with the train. So in love that I was so sad when they get off the train so soon in the movie!"

She also recreated the concierge from The Grand Budapest Hotel, sans the Lobby Boy.

She only took a week to finish this intricate design... JUST A WEEK. 😦

"His films - the symmetry and frontal view compositions - fit very well with how I do illustrations."

"I wish I had more time for papercutting. Everytime I see a good film, I’m tempted to cut it for a little piece. I have a huge list of films I would love to recreate."

Keep on cutting, Mar!
