sculpting in the eye of a needle

Yes. You heard me right. This amazing artist Willard Wigan literally makes sculptures that fit into the eye of a needle.

It’s still a huge mystery to me how he controls his shaping tools on such a minuscule level and paints the characters. He describes losing a past work in progress by accidentally breathing it into his nostrils. TED did an interesting little feature on Willard, which you can check out below. You have to see this guy’s work to believe it.
