MICRO

It's hard to believe these are real!

Check out the amazing micro sculptures, like
America's First Family below,
by Willard Wigan.

The British sculptor is known all around the world
for his miniature sculptures that are
invisible to the naked eye.

Willard uses tiny homemade tools and paints with
a hair plucked from a housefly's back. He carves
the microscopic figures from grains of rice or
sand or sugar. The sculptures, which often
take months to complete, are then
mounted on pin heads or needles.


His latest exhibition is on now at My
Little Eye Gallery in Bloomsbury,
London WC1A 1LU.
