Instead of taking your loved one to Paris, why don’t you make it less obvious and propose with this bottle?

This piece of Africa in a bottle features a giraffe, an elephant, a horse, rhinoceros, an ostrich, and a deer surrounding by plants and drinking water.

Izumi Akinobu’s tiny art creations can be worn as a necklace or viewed as tiny landscapes that don’t take up a lot of desk space. They cost about 25 dollars each and can be shipped from Tokyo [6] to anywhere in the world.
