Alberta Artist Creates Miniature Sculpture of Martin Luther King

Canadian miniature sculptor Juliana LePine filmed herself masterfully crafting a bust of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, in footage posted to YouTube on January 17.

“Today is the third Monday of January, today is the day we recognize and honor Martin Luther King Jr,” wrote LePine. “A man that dedicated his life fighting for civil rights spreading love and strength among us.”

The work of the Canada-based miniaturist can be seen on her Instagram account.

LePine’s many models have included detailed reproductions of artists such as Vincent van Gogh, John Lennon, Axl Rose, and Freddie Mercury, as well as fictional characters like Doc Brown, and Dracula. Credit: Juliana LePine Sculptures via Storyful
