During the Middle Ages Paris was the largest city in Europe. It was, and still is, a religious, commercial, cultural and intellectual centre. However, by the start of the 18th century, though it could be said to have some beautiful buildings, it was not a beautiful city. Napoleon III engaged Georges-Eugène Haussmann in 1852 to unify the city and to make it more beautiful. The street plan and distinctive appearance of the centre of Paris today is largely the result of Haussmann's renovation. The brilliance of Haussmann’s vision is best seen at Place Charles de Gaulle, the location of the Arc de Triomphe, with 12 boulevards branching out into the city in a radial pattern.
This 3d map of Paris, at a scale of 1:5000, is centred on the Arc de Triomphe. It is a single plaster tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in a perspex frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

I was in Florence one month ago !The model is absolutely amazing and reminds me of everything I saw in this incredible city
Model received safe and sound. Another superb one!
Chisel and Mouse are one of the most innovate and interesting companies to emerge in the last few years. The models are superb, intricately detailed, and a joy to have. Iâ€™m on my 7th, with an 8th on the way. For those with a love of architectural models, made with a real love of the craft, and delivered with a highly professional service, these pieces are second only having to the real thing.
I got the models and they are awesome!!!!. The product, wrapping and service delivery were excellent. Thank you so much.
Just opened my birthday present. A fantastic replica of Broadcasting House by G.Val Myer and I couldn't be more delighted. My partner tells me the company were super helpful. The sculpture is a perfect replica of substantial weight and quality build. It will be taking up residency in my Radio Museum in Watchet as the only 3 dimensional representation of this iconic building.Its just perfect! Thank you Chisel and Mouse.
The models are amazing. I am ordering another 4.
As always what a beautiful piece and speedy delivery.
Received our order and we are super happy with it, so much so we have just placed another order for two more cityscapes! Hoping to purchase another 3 for a total of 6 to make an impactful wall feature. Thank you all for an amazing piece of sculptural art.
