Tiny Tuesday: Tiny landscape or coffee stain?

Japanese artist, Yukihiro Kaneuchi, has created a tiny landscape inside a coffee cup. At a glance, it just appears to be a ring of coffee stain around the interior of the ceramic mug, but if you peer closer, you'll spot two girls dancing, a crescent moon, flowers, a bird, a pig!
When a product is created, it is as though new born, with no memory or understanding of the world around it. These relationships are formed through user interaction over time, the product "ages" and gains knowledge of it's purpose in the world.The stain's image is a representation of the products feelings, memory as the product ages through use. - Kaneuchi
