The National Gallery of Australia, Canberra - in a matchbox
THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF AUSTRALIA, CANBERRA
A regular matchbox is given a makeover to become a cute tiny version of the great buildings of Canberra Australia and region. A keepsake you can fit in your hand. Photographs cover the box and plastic furniture decorates the inside.
Built in a brutalist style from 1973-1982, it houses the national art collection of Australia as well as travelling exhibitions. The building’s design is based on the triangle, visible throughout the structure. It was listed on the Heritage Register in 2007.
The Matchbox measures 5.4cm wide, 3.7cm tall and 1.7cm deep when closed.
The exact people and furniture may differ from pictured as each is individually hand-made. If you have something specific in mind for the people/furniture, please let us know when you order.
A lot of love has gone into the making of our dollhouses and each is a totally unique upcycled piece. They are significantly handmade and as such have their own personality and imperfections. Young people should be supervised and care should be taken when handling them.
