    Full title reads: "The Forest".

    Harvard Museum, Boston, Massachusetts, New England, United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of woodland. A man's hand comes into shot and we realise this realistic forest is in fact a miniature model!

    Inside model making workshop. Various shots of two men placing tiny trees into set of miniature forest. Various C/Us of man making tree model with individual branches of copper wire. The man dips the branches into molten solder. Various C/Us of assembling branches into tree, the branches and trunks are painted to look like white birch. Extreme C/U of tiny copper needles for evergreen models. The needles are soldered onto wire in bunches. C/U of needle branches being twisted, by hand, into a tree shape. Extreme C/U of tree trunk, a man is using a stamp to create bark affect in wet paint.

    More shots of model forest - looks very convincing.
