I've been around the world and no where have I seen such varied talent from one man. Our local tour guide Phillada Lecomte introduced us to Benetos. This self-taught artist's attention to detail is unparalleled.

Whatever you do don’t miss this exhibit. The name does not do the exhibit justice in terms of the craftsmanship and attention to detail this man has put into his work. The ships are truly amazing in detail and the buildings are just magnificent.
