TWO local emblems have finally been added to a surprising miniature artwork collection in the heart of Mijas Pueblo.
Although the Carromato de Max opened in 1972, the museum (which was launched with a massive party to celebrate being the first of its kind in Europe) lacked a Mijas touch.
Now the collection, which includes a portrait on Abraham Lincoln in the eye of a needle and the seven wonders of the world on a toothpick, can boast pictures of the local patron saint, the Virgen de la Peña, and a donkey.
Created by Granada artist Fatima Julia Doña Molinero, the new additions are of course of a size in fitting with the rest of the collection.
While the Virgin has been painted onto the head of a drawing pin, the donkey can be seen (through a magnifying glass) on a tiny grain of rice.
