Empire Sugarland Supreme!

There's nothing better than miniature cities... with the obvious exception of miniature cities built entirely out of edible substances (especially ones that are yummy sweet and melt in your mouth). And that must be why Meshac Gaba built his fantasy city out of loads and loads of white sugar (though I have no proof for this).

If you look closely at these photos, you'll notice that many of the larger structures are scale replicas of famous buildings from around the globe. Combined togther, they form his mini-metropolis which I call, "Empire Sugarland Supreme!"

Gaba however, has gone for the more subtle (and practically gloomy) "Port City". What's with these artists?
