Tiny Landscape in a Coffee Cup

Japanese designer and artist Yukihiro Kaneuchi has created a tiny landscape in a coffee cup.

This cup was created using the concept that as we grow and age and relationships are formed over time through interactions with others. Thus, as you drink your coffee over time, a tiny landscape appears from the coffee stain, evoking the same idea that a relationship develops and emerges over time with this object.
