A model of a sailing ship inside a small necked bottle is interesting to most people.
Source: text book

Hello,
The blue part does not make sense to me because how a small ship can be inside a drinking bottle?
Tiny stones can be put into a drinking bottle but how a toy ship can be inside a drinking bottle?
You see my confusion? Would you please clarify the blue part to me? I can not understand the blue part at all.

Many thanks

    You've identified exactly what's interesting about models of ships in a bottle -- you look at it and wonder how on earth it got inside!

    Here are some examples: https://www.google.com/search?q=ship+in+a+bottle&es_sm=91&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=VwndU6CsBsOf8AHskIDIAQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1310&bih=785

    I'm not actually sure how these wonderful things are made, but maybe someone who knows the trick can enlighten us.
    Oh my God. Many thanks. It was a great answer. I'm seeing the pictures now. Wow. It's wonderful.
    Thank you.
