Hold Me Closer Tiny Sculptor

Willard Wigan makes tiny sculptures. No, like, tiny. Like, so small you can't even see them. But they're there alright. I mean smaller than a match head. Like small enough to fit into the eye of a needle. Small enough to stand on an eyelash! I just used italics people, that's how small. And they aren't just sculptures of you know, a rock or something. I'm talking serious detail here. Like Snow-White-and-all-seven-of-them-dwarves-in-the-eye-of-one-needle detail. The Micro Sculptor, as he is known, uses materials like dust, eyelashes and spiderwebs to create his mini masterpieces. When his work is exhibited it is shown through microscopes with 100x magnification. When he paints his little works, Willard says he tries to slow his breathing and his pulse and only paints between heartbeats to ensure that his hand will remain steady. Willard attributes his incredible ability to God and stuff but I think he should keep all the glory for himself.

That little girl is standing on an eyelash. For rizzle.

See, I told you so.

This might give you a better idea of just how small we're talking here.
