This diorama was constructed basically the same way as the Provence one. The figures are actually dolls that I made and painted. All the accessories on the dolls like the crown were made by me too. To see more dolls that I made please visit my Etsy store where I have them for sale as well as many other beautiful things addictedtomermaids.etsy.com. I think this type of diorama would make a great wedding gift. The doors do close for storage or moving. The starfish at the top is one of my very favorite things that I've made because the size and shape of it. It is sewn then painted and the points are so slim they measure only about 3/16 wide and about1 inch long. The diorama itself measures about 9 inches tall and 7 inches wide. It has a string at the back for hanging.
