Stumbled across this.. a sculptor who creates the smallest works of art in the world!

This is a series of models of Henry VIII and his wives… inside the eye of a needle!

Click on the image to see his website.. unbelieveable.

His wikipedia article says he “uses a tiny surgical blade to carve microscopic figures out of gold, and fragments of grains of sand which are then mounted on pinheads. To paint his creations, he uses a hair plucked from a dead fly (the fly has to have died from natural causes, as he refuses to kill them for the sake of his art, preferring to decorate a glass sheet instead)”
