Abby Goldman “uses tiny figurines to recreate scenes of gore and mayhem, everything from trailer park murders to decapitations with gardening equipment. She calls them ‘die-o-ramas.'”

The attention to detail and historical accuracy makes them. They are definitely on my “want” list.
UPDATE : As pointed out by TanteFledermaus, miniatures modeled to look like crime scenes were the modus operandi of the serial killer throughout season 7 of the fictitious CBS crime-scene drama “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
Fascinating (at least to me), the CSI story line was inspired by the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death. Designed by a millionaire heiress, Frances Glesner Lee, with an interest in forensic studies, the Nutshell Studies are dollhouse recreations of actual murder scenes. A book on the Nutshell Studies can be found at this link.
