Jungfrau-Eiger reliorama

February 26, 2010

A Reliorama is a model, an accurate image in miniature produced with all the care of Swiss precision work. With its new dimensions it opens up a completely new view for you of the old familiar shapes of famous mountains-a real panorama for you to enjoy in the comfort of your home.

And what’s more, every Reliorama us also a miniature sculpture-when the light makes a fascinating play on the relief. The shape its self would make it a supreme object of beauty-even if was not model on reality. We found just a little bit of info, but wanted to share this project with you, as it’s a fascinating toy-book-model:

And now, here it is: Model terrain made of metal and plastic, scale 1: 75 000, 11 x 16 cm. Reliorama, Swiss made before 1990. This subject has been presented at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris in the exhibition “Images derived” from 1990 to 2000.

The Jungfrau (German: “maiden/virgin”) is one of the main summits in the Bernese Alps, situated between the cantons of Valais and Bern in Switzerland. Together with the Eiger and Mönch, the Jungfrau forms a massive wall overlooking the Bernese Oberland and considered one of the most emblematic sights of the Swiss Alps.
