I really don't think I could ever get my fill of good dioramas, and here are some more great ones from French artist Didier Massard.

Made without the help of digital manipulation, he conceives his complex images in his imagination and draws on our romantic notions of travel and place. His exotic creations evoke travels throughout Ireland, China, India, Holland, the cliffs of Normandy, and even underwater. Massard works for very long periods on each diorama, and hopes that each "is the completion of an inner imaginary journey."
