What is A Diorama?

In a nutshell a diorama can be defined as a miniature scene. This covers a lot of ground but it is pretty accurate. The important thing is that it be miniature and the diorama can be of a familiar or real scene or even of a fantasy or created scene that doesn't exist anywhere in the world.

There are many different purposes of dioramas and the first purpose is simply for the viewing pleasure of it. But dioramas can also serve other purposes and if you have ever been to a museum you have probably seen dioramas. These could be scenes from the natural world or from the past that show how things were or how they work.

Here is a wide variety of interesting Dioramas. If you are considering making a diorama I have lots of tutorials on how to do them. Each project shows you the steps to making that kind of diorama.
