Micro Sculpture

Hannah Sheflyand

Have you ever heard or seen such a thing? I first heard about this art type in a TED talk. The photos below are all micro sculptures made by Willard Wigan. Each one of these pieces either sits within the eye of a needle, on a pin head or pencil and is only visible through a microscope. Willard Wigan stated that he can only work at night by getting himself into a meditative state where his heartbeat is slowed, he works in between heart beats to reduce movement.

These are almost unbelievable!
