Small in scale, yet teeming with life, miniature boxwood carvings have been a source of wonder since their creation in the Netherlands in the 16th century. “Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures,” which is on view at The Met Cloisters through May 21, features nearly 50 intricately carved objects—some measuring a mere two inches (five centimeters) in diameter. Half of a Prayer Bead with the Crucifixion, early 16th century. #TheMet #MetCloisters #SmallWonders
