A Mystifying Sci-Fi-Inspired Terrarium

Ancient Goddess Ruins is an otherworldly terrarium created by artist Tony Larson, aka Megatone230. The organic-seeming diorama is in fact composed of absolutely no living plant life, making it more of an intriguing sculptural piece encased in a large 13-inch glass jar. If you were looking for another chia head, look again because this creation won’t grow greenery, though on the bright side there’s also no maintenance necessary and it has a supernatural appeal.

The Minneapolis-based sculptor handcrafts each piece, combining man and foliage in an organic aesthetic that, as the artist himself says, “makes a great conversation piece!” Ancient Goddess Ruins can be purchased on Larson’s Etsy shop called The Wonder Room for $230, but perhaps taking a look around will spark an interest in some other science fictional and historical pieces featuring Yoda, ewoks, and dinosaurs. Each terrarium comes in its own uniquely-shaped glass container with customized inorganic terrain.
