The artist at work. He calls his opus The Universe, but it's mostly the solar system.
We all have our provincialisms, I suppose.

Inspecting the model.

Finished! A neighboring artist printed the English labels (click on picture to enlarge),
and my beloved spouse researched and printed the Chinese characters.
(She took the photos too.)
The four-year-old is in a Chinese-language preschool.
My beloved spouse and I assisted him with the backgrounds.
But never without him working on it at the same time.
Just like in the Renaissance studios.

One day he walked into the kitchen hiding behind his picture.
"Where's Nat?" he said.
"What's that Universe doing in our kitchen?!
Who let that Universe in our kitchen?!"

Unsurprisingly, the Universe giggled.
